What does the future look like? 

This experience takes us on a journey to the end of time, trillions of years into the future, to discover what the fate of our planet and our universe may ultimately be.We start in 2019 and travel exponentially through time, witnessing the future of Earth, the death of the sun, the end of all stars, proton decay, zombie galaxies, possible future civilizations, exploding black holes, the effects of dark energy, alternate universes, the final fate of the cosmos - to name a few.

After six months of production, it was released on YouTube, and screened on several venues; it also won the 2020 Webby Awards. The film became viral, garnering tens of millions of views, and got extremely positive reviews. The film is also the inspiration of a song and music video by Noah Cyrus; she praised the existential elements of the film. A spin-off, Life Beyond, was later made.

Methodology

The method of time in the film is "a lot more thought and trickery" from the predecessor Timelapse of the Entire Universe, where every second is 22 million years, and that every frame is approximately 958,000 years, thus having 13.8 billion years in nearly 10 minutes. Boswell chose a different methodology in Timelapse of the Future, saying that:

It could have been every three seconds, and the video would have been over in fifteen minutes. But then you’re really cramming a ton of stuff into the first few minutes. Everything from the present day to the death of the earth would’ve occurred in one minute instead of three to four. That would’ve made it really hard to breathe. But then you have to apply that same rule to the rest of the video, and ensure you’ve got enough stuff in there to fill the time. It’s a balance.

In Timelapse of the Future, the time per frame reduces to approximately 0.5 months per frame (film is 24 fps) at the beginning, increasing as it evolves. It uses the calculation: 12/24 = 0.5, in which: 12 = months, 24 = frames rate, and 0.5 = months.

Melodysheep's mission is to evoke a sense of awe and wonder about the universe through immersive, emotional, non-fiction storytelling.  By mixing precision motion graphics, cutting edge visual effects, soaring orchestral-electronic scores, and mind-expanding concepts, his work stands out among other educational and non-fiction creators online, designed to make you think, feel, and be swallowed up by the beauty of the universe.

Melodysheep is John D. Boswell, a filmmaker, composer, VFX artist, and editor from the pacific northwest. His work spans from television and music production to viral remixes and mashups, and has drawn over a quarter billion views online. In 2017, Melodysheep created the 8 part series ORIGINS for National Geographic, and has done extensive work with Disney, PBS, and many other collaborators. His experimental film "Timelapse of the Future" garnered two Webby awards and over 50 million views.

Absolutely beautiful picture!

I have now bought 2 of these. After framing and hanging the first one I have had nothing but rave reviews on it. I then bought one for a friend. Even the individual doing the framing said it was an amazing piece. Very unique and high quality. Delivery was extremely fast as well.

We purchased 4 large fine art prints and are very happy with the quality of the prints.... impressive detail and color.
Great service, and the owner quickly responded to questions (even over the weekend). He also thought along with us, offering custom print sizing.
