Completing a project that began two years ago, we’ve just received our first copies of a three-part educational movie filmed for NASA, for which we served as directors, animators, editors, and producers.
Spacefaring: The Radiation Challenge, addresses the topic of radiation and human space flight, and was produced in tandem with the Space Science Institute. We combined live action with 3D animation and compositing to create a trio of video shorts for DVD. The plot follows three young astronauts encountering a solar storm on their way to Mars, but it’s more than just a movie –classroom activities accompany each act of the story, designed for both middle school and high school students.
Spacefaring also includes video-game-level special effects, and is available in both standard definition and HD formats.
