Video Description

There's so much that we can do with physics, yet so much more that we still have to learn. In this video, simple phrases and smooth animations help describe the beauty and practicality of physics. What will you discover? Music used with permission from Danny Baranowsky.

Dear Mr. Sardesal,

I really enjoyed your video. What you did with the graphics was great. It explained physic's concepts in a simple, yet interesting way. I would show your video to students, so that they can see the many applications one can use physics in. Since young people always want to know how they can use what they learn in class in the real world, your video helped do that by showing that. I gave it a good rating and I hope others will too.

Also if it isn't too much to ask, it has been difficult getting others in the community to check out my video. I hope you might take a look at it and rate it. It's “The Escape - Physics and Fairytales"

Our aim, too is to stimulate interest in physics for a lay person in an entertaining. simple and informative way. My team & I used an identifiable character in children's literature (Cinderella) who uses physics to plan her quick escape. By showing the functionality of physics (although for a fictional character), we felt this will help create an interest in others for the field of physics. I hope you like it.

Again, great job.

I think this video is very good to promote physics, and is also well done.

Hi Neil,

I really like this video. It has good pacing, the music fits, and I just like this style in general. Did you use Adobe After Effects?

P.S. If you could watch and rate my video, "The Cool Physics of Refrigeration," that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

David

Hi Neil!

I'm guessing you made this video in AE, What plug in did you use to make the "magnetic" "liquid" or that the letters interact well with the font? was it newton? I haven't try it yet but after watching your video I HAVE to try it, your video is fantastic, explanation 5 stars, visuals 5 stars, engaging and educational, plus the design, beautiful, I rated your video 5 stars, thanks for taking the time to make such a great video, I did not only learn about physics but also want to learn more about Newton!

if you have time to watch my video "having fun no MATTER what"

I would highly appreciate it!

hope to see great video on the future from you!

To everyone wondering, I used Adobe After Effects for the animation along with Motion Boutique's Newton 2 plugin. Newton is essentially a 2D physics simulator that allowed me to create some of the complex animations like the falling balls and the magnetic text. Glad you liked the video!

Hi Neil

I really enjoyed your video. Crisp and clean animations (I will have to check out Adobe After Effects)! I see that I am Community Vote #10! I wish you the best of luck in the competition.

Cheers

Neil,

I am glad that your very interesting video has reached the 10 community votes threshold (I gave you my vote a few days ago but didn't leave a comment), and that it has a good chance to be in the top 40 that will make it to the finals! By the way, when I saw what you did with After Effects, I downloaded the trial version and I've spent the last few days playing with it. I may also get the Newton plug-in that you used with great effectiveness!

Did you have the chance to take a look at my series of videos entitled "This Is Physics"? One of my videos, "Physics Into Darkness", is still in need of community votes, and if you have the time to take a look at it, it would be quite appreciated. My video also features Einstein riding on a meter stick, an "iceberg of mystery" and a slot machine that creates universes!!! Here's the direct link:

Physics Into Darkness

Keep up making great videos, and good luck in the contest!

For all its simplicity...

This is one of the better videos, or one of the best I've seen. Bravo for creating an excellent commercial to get people interested in Physics! Thanks Neil.

All the Best,

Jonathan

This is very crisp and clean and professional. I loved this a lot.

Great work. Just rated you 5 stars.

If you'd like, please check out my video Tons of Fun (physics rap) and vote for it. We just need 2 more votes! Thank you.
