Contact intro

Published on 29 Apr 2009. Tagged with films, video, contact, powersoften, rayeames.

The intro to the 1997 film Contact, starring Jodie Foster. The choice of radio samples is blatantly obvious (Kennedy assassination) or awful (yes, those are the Spice Girls) at times, but the intro always gives me the creeps nonetheless.

(Also check out Powers of Ten by Ray and Charles Eames.)
