In November, a film shoot took place on the University of Maryland campus for a video that will be distributed as part of the World Year of Physics PhysicsQuest project for middle school students. Portrayed in the video are Jessica Clark of APS, played by Sarah Fox, and Albert Einstein, played by Marc Spiegel (see photos on page 1). In the photo at left, “Jessica” (back to camera) watches as (l to r) Ernie Tretkoff of APS, Martha Heil of the American Institute of Physics, and James Riordon of APS demonstrate some of the PhysicsQuest experiments. In the photo at right, director of photography Jeff Baker and director Chris Andersen work out some fine points of lighting and camera angles as Ernie Tretkoff stands in for Sarah Fox. Clips from the video will be available for viewing on the World Year of Physics web site, www.physics2005.org, sometime in February.
