Films by Timothy Ferris

Seeing In The Dark   Buy

"A rhapsodic sight-and-sound odyssey into the night sky." — Frazier Moore, Associated Press

"The high-definition astrophotography looks like something out of Star Wars. Who remembered that our real universe could look that way, too?" — Joshua Zumbrun, Washington Post

"A charming love letter to the backyard astronomer in all of us: Grade A!" — Gloria Goodale, Christian Science Monitor

"This is not your standard one-dimensional, expository science documentary. Seeing in the Dark is more like a reality show from inside a love affair." — Dave Brody,

"Spectacular! ... An inspiring and family-friendly production. Watch it with the kids." — Michael Storey, Arkansas Online

"Terrific! Accompanied by music from Mark Knopfler and Guy Fletcher, this special is beautifully photographed and paced — like a night out under the stars." — Frank Roylance, Baltimore Sun

Life Beyond Earth   Buy

"A powerful film. With an elegance and economy of language, Ferris manages to cover a sweeping range of science in two hours while probing some of the deepest questions humans have ever asked." -- Robert Naeye, Astronomy.

"An inviting, well-rounded look at the research and sociology of how we came to be." -- Stuart Goldman, Sky & Telescope.

"Admirers of this science writer's 1985 film, 'The Creation of the Universe,' should again be engaged by the sweep of his argument, which draws on everything from astrophysics to microbiology to science fiction, and by the visual inventiveness that his producers have brought to their evocations of planets and galaxies, volcanoes and ice-bound wastes." -- Walter Goodman, The New York Times.

A "beautiful, evocative program... Ferris is both laconic and dryly humorous." -- Verne Gay, Newsday.

"Awe-inspiring and often visually stunning... If 'Life Beyond Earth' proves anything, it's that intelligent life can sometimes be found on television." -- Kevin Mcdonough, Charleston Daily Mail.
