How lasers can be used to play CDs, or to shoot down a hostile alien battle fleet.

Director's Notes:

Don’t Panic! Here’s a film to explain how to ward off evil alien invaders using a LASER… as inspired by Douglas Adams.

Chris was a L6 Former at St Albans School, and devised the film during the post-AS summer project period. Alison, his younger sister, worked from home and assisted with the graphics. Structure and guidance was provided by the teachers, but conception and creation of this film is entirely the work of the students.
