The other nuclear reaction.

Director's Notes:

What happens inside stars? Why is the Sun hot? Isn’t Nucleosynthesis an indie band? It’s all here…

Luke, Kieran and Elliot made this film at St Albans School as a L6 summer project. Structure and guidance was given by the teachers, but the conception and creation of the film is entirely the work of the students.

Music: Jane Austin in Space by C.P.Bryan provided by

SciCast Notes:

Ooh, I like these animation-on-a-whiteboard films, it’s a really lovely style. You can almost smell the patience, too. Or maybe that’s synesthesia. Anyway, there’s a lot crammed into this.

A detail worth noting: the audio mix is rather good. The music bubbles along nicely, doesn’t get in the way but does help push things along. Nicely done.
