Quantum Quest is a science fiction – science space film that takes you on an atomic adventure in space. This film features an all star cast, and was initiated by JPL/NASA through a grant from Jet Propulsion Lab via the international Cassini Huygens Mission to Saturn. Never before have on going missions been involved in a film project, and never before has a film been initiated by NASA. As you will see below, QQ is tied into 7 on going space missions. The 3D, large format CGI-animated educational entertaining film “Quantum Quest” interweaves actual space imagery captured from the seven ongoing NASA space missions with an adventure story set in an imaginary atomic universe to create a captivating family friendly action film experience (you might call it a solar safari!) that entertains while subtly educating and inspiring viewers about our solar system. It includes footage from the Cassini-Huygen, SOHO, Mars Odyssey, Mars Express, Venus Express, and Mercury Messenger space missions.
“Quantum Quest” will be released in September of 2009 in both large format and regular theaters worldwide. The film is 45 minutes long and the film integrates with a comprehensive pre and post theater educational program for K – 12 students that exceed all Federal and State educational guidelines. Through these materials we want to educate kids globally about the importance and wonders of science. As part of our educational outreach program, the actors of the film have participated in creating Quantum Quest Edclips. A new clip will be added approximately once a week until the film is released. All classrooms and educational organizations are free to use and distribute these clips for educational purposes. We will also be adding over the next 9 months pre and post educational material which can be freely copied and distributed for educational use.
