Discovery Science to launch film-themed show

#1
MUMBAI: How does a 3-D camera fool the brain? What is the margin of error between a “safe trajectory” and “complete disaster” when launching a bus 50 feet into the air? What do rows of ping-pong balls on a motion caption suit actually do?

Discovery Science's new show, Science of the Movies, will look to answer these questions by lifting the curtain on the science behind movies. Taking the lead is off-beat fanboy Nar Williams who hosts this journey through the latest and greatest in movie and TV technology, innovation and trends.

Science of the Movies will air every Tuesday at 8:30 pm, starting from 17 August 2010.

Science of the Movies will dissect the 3-D camera designed by James Cameron for The Abyss, takes a look at the biology of martial arts movie star Jackie Chan and find out how he pulls off those incredibly agile moves and delve into the chemical components of combustion to discover why things go ‘boom!’.

Discovery India senior VP, GM Rahul Johri says, “Discovery Science’s new series Science of the Movies reveals the science behind the most heart-stopping effects sequences in movies. The programme explores the scientific world that exists behind the screen, spotlighting the visionary artists, innovative technology and remarkable techniques responsible for creating unforgettable, edge-of-your-seat moments in blockbuster films.”

Each episode breaks down the scientific elements of a motion picture, with behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with visionary artists and technicians. Viewers will find out what makes some movies more exciting than your usual popcorn-and-nachos affair, what keeps movie buffs glued to their seats and queuing for tickets at the cinema. Nar visits some of the top visual/special effect experts in the industry to determine if the effects seen in the movies can be replicated in real life. Now if only science class was this fun!

In the first episode, Nar explores the motion control technology behind cloning and the famous Spidey-sense from Spiderman, rides a CG elephant created by the creature effects team behind 300 and embarks on a chase scene using wireless camera mounts.
