The standard model of particle physics — in song!

Director's Notes:

An informative musical video on the fundamentals of fundamental particles.

Produced in one afternoon.

Winner: Best Original Score, 2011

Nominee: IOP Best Physics Film (Secondary), 2011

SciCast Notes:

“Do they know they’re really geeky?”
“Their team name is ‘NerdSong’. I’m guessing: ‘yes’.”

So went the conversation in SciCast Orbiting World Headquarters when we first saw this. We love it. Love love love it. Just brilliant, and finally we have something to get that dratted Geiger-Müller Groove out of our heads. We’ve been singing that for two years, sheesh!

Thanks, guys. This is glorious.
