Sure, the execution is goofy, but what´s novel here is the fact that the film represents a serious scientist disseminating his research findings to the public, in a format suitable for audiences "ages 15 to 85," as Schuller likes to say. He could have just published his findings on nanotech in a prestigious journal and called it a day (which he´s been doing over a 30-year career in science). Instead he spent three years and $400,000 dollars, underwritten by the National Science Foundation, UCSD and others, to make a funny movie about his project. "Most people think science is boring," Schuller says. "Why should we pretend that we´re like everyone else?" So is there another film on Schuller´s horizon? Yup, you guessed it-When Things Get Big.
