The Orbit of Minor Satellites

Christopher Sullivan

The Orbit of Minor Satellites is an animated feature film comprised of hand-drawn, 2-D animations with painted backgrounds. It tells the story of two different worlds in which characters are interconnected by the most unlikely threads. The first environment is a psychiatrist’s office where a teenage girl is in session with her therapist. The other environment is a cavernous space station on the subarctic desolation of Mimas, one of the moons of Saturn. A core idea in the film is that the pivotal moments of most people’s lives take place in rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and classrooms where conversations, actions and touch shape future events.
