The Mechanics

In 2011 I interviewed six Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore, researchers in various spots around Singapore, editing their stories together into a film that not only gives a sense of what quantum physics is, but also what motivates those who study it. The short film The Mechanics is a “showreel” for what I hoped to grow into a series about quantum information – and it grew, into Reality Lost movie. Artur Ekert (depicted above) – thanks for the invitation!

Here’s a trailer.

 

Here’s a short, 9-min long version.

 

And finally – here’re the The Mechanics!

 

You can read more about the movie on the Centre for Quantum Technologies website.
