WE NOW KNOW: The Complete History of Science is under construction!
Writers Peter Carlone and Ryan Gladstone have been hard at work, periodically, for almost 4 years. It turns out that converting complex scientific material into entertaining, clear, fun material for young audiences isn’t as easy as it might sound. But “sciencing to do they did!” and with the script finally complete, we are ready to launch into production development.
Thanks to generous support from both the BC Arts Council and the City of Vancouver, we’ve been able to conduct a series of workshops to test out the material.
WE NOW KNOW is jam packed, like protons in a nucleus, with projections. While co-writer Peter will be handling a lot of the animations, local artist Nima Gholami. He has begun the process of creating original art assets for the hundreds of individual projections. Here’s a short bio so you can get to know him!
Nima Gholamipour is an Iranian-Canadian artist, animator, comedian and film maker living and working in Vancouver British Columbia. He is currently working as a part time artist at a mobile game studio and can be seen regularly performing improv and sketch comedy at various underground comedy shows in the city. One of his favorite scientists is Stephen Hawking.
