What happens when an astronaut, his son and his dog get together with some highly creative people and The Foundry’s software? A whole lot of mischief, that’s what!
With a 35-year career as a military pilot and astronaut coming to an end, Chris Hadfield garnered global attention and an enthusiastic following (we’re talking over one million Twitter followers) by regularly posting on social media while acting as commander of the International Space Station on his last mission in 2013. Now he’s the author of two bestselling books that have shown us the earth in breaktaking photographs and taught us some useful tips for living in space, such as why you’d choose to eat tortillas over bread (they don’t leave crumbs). It’s Not Rocket Science is his latest venture.
Dan ‘DC’ Turner does a lot of things. He illustrates, animates, directs, is a multi-instrumentalist and composer, and codes in several languages. Dan worked on the animated version of Tim Minchin’s Storm in early 2009 after a chance meeting with Tim in a pub. His first project post-Storm was directing and animating the cutscenes for the Dreamworks videogame Puss in Boots, followed by several educational science cartoons for which he also composed and performed the soundtracks.
Tracy King is a writer, producer and science populariser. Before turning to animation, she ran a successful marketing and PR company, during which time she created major science and critical-thinking events and had an early viral video success with her marketing campaign for Prof. Richard Wiseman’s book Quirkology. Tracy worked alongside DC on Tim Minchin’s Storm and—following its success—they founded a small studio, kershoot.com, in London to make animations, videogames and music.
