trailer released:

Cloud Atlas is maybe the most ambitious and unusual film I have ever worked on. Based on the best-selling novel by David Mitchell it tells six interconnected stories through different genres spanning over a period of 1000 years. An epic story of humankind in which the actions and consequences of our lives impact one another throughout the past, present and future.

I was working mainly for futuristic scenarios way beyond science-fiction where everything lies in ruins again. ..there you go :-)
Above is a teaser pic of mine for the Satellite Center, as it appears in the trailer.  Another preview can be seen on George's website here →.

Cloud Atlas will hit theaters earlier than expected on October 26th.
Now here is the trailer with an epic lenght of six minutes. Enjoy. atlas
