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.
