THe martian


Produced to look like a mini-episode of StarTalk from the year 2035, this 3 min. overview of the Ares program gives audiences an inspiring vision of a future where man has traveled to Mars. The video–anchored by host Neil deGrasse Tyson (aged slightly to fit the 2035 scenario)–will give viewers a complete overview of how an Ares mission works, with a focus on the danger and bravery of the astronauts who undertake the mission.


This video is part of a series of original prologue short films for Ridley Scott’s “The Martian.” The series depicts a future where mankind has traveled to Mars, establishes a rich emotional backstory for the Ares 3 crew, and follows the events of the mission’s disaster with a sense of urgency as the world watches the story unfold.
