Dear Moon Project

Most noteworthy is the press conference about the #dearMoon project at SpaceX. I do love this project – not only because it will advance spaceflight, possibly helping prevent human exctinction. The message of peace and unity of mankind gives it the most value for me.

It will bring together many people from many nations to collaborate on different aspects of the project (and follow up artist projects), fostering mutual understanding. Involving those great artists will have a multiplying effect to spread the positive message of joy, peace, love and unity of mankind. Also it will strengthen environmental thoughts seeing our fragile earth from outer space. This means through fewer wars and less environmental pressures, there will be less suffering, famines, inequality as a result. For that reason it does help the poor and unfortunate, even though not immediately, but in the long run and probably with a bigger lever. You can also read Yusaku Maezawa’s explanation here: https://note.mu/ysk2020/n/nb771546c18cf
Kudos Yusaku 🙂

Let me know your thoughts and ideas in the comments. See you in outer space!

Credits

Because creating those Felini videos means tons of work, every help is very much appreciated. Big thanks and hugs go to Peter Colebatch for the initial modeling & grooming of Felini cat. And Oyvind Nostdal for character rigging. Lot’s of pictures of Felini have public domain photos in the background, found on e.g. Pixabay, Unsplash, Pexels, uploaded by unbelievably generous and talented photographers. I also used sound fx from freesound.org and footage from Mitch Martinez. Thank you all so much!!!

The rest is done by me, Til (animator & daddy of 3 awesome girls). I hope you enjoy Felini as much as I do and that he makes you feel joyful and motivated. Furthermore I wish for Felini to one day be able to contribute substantially to making this world a better place…
