Nanosys Quantum Dot technology is typically used to produce high quality, vibrant images on QLED televisions. For the abstract short film Quantum Flows we used the nano-particles in a rather different way and mixed them in various states of fluidity to produce a piece focused on vivid and pure HDR color as well as subtle detail that can be experienced in high resolution 8K. Director/DP Phil Holland was creatively inspired by primary nature of the colors and sought inspiration from artists like Jackson Pollock and filmmakers like Stanley Kubrick. With the help of motion control robots, controlled UV lighting, and capturing in 8K resolution this short film came to life and provides a unique visual experience.
