FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANTA CLARA, CA—JULY 9, 2008—NVIDIA today announced that NVISION® 08 attendees are in for a special experience: an exclusive screening of “Fly Me to the Moon,” a brand-new digital 3D animated feature that will open in August in the U.S. In addition, NVIDIA is delighted to welcome the second man to walk on the moon, former Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, in a special guest appearance, addressing the NVISION audience at the beginning of the film screening. In the film, Mr. Aldrin plays himself in a live-action cameo. The screening will also feature an in-person introduction by Director Ben Stassen of Brussels-based nWave Pictures.
Open to all registrants of NVISION 08, including the General Admission category, “Fly Me to the Moon” will be shown at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, August 25 at the Center for the Performing Arts in San Jose, California. To register for NVISION 08, go to http://www.amireg.com/nvision08/intro.html.
Buzz Aldrin commented: “Being involved in this film was a lot of fun. I expect it to bring the historic Apollo 11 story alive to a new generation of children and their parents. I look forward to the opportunity to greet the audience at NVISION 08, young and old alike.”
“3D films have the potential to be the second cinematic revolution, on par with the transition from silent films to talking pictures,” commented Mr. Stassen. “3D is a new cinematic language, which allows the audience to literally feel that they are part of the story.”
Mr. Stassen added: “ ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ is the first computer-animated film ever to be designed, created, and produced exclusively in 3D. It will also be the first film to be shown only in 3D.”
Rated G, “Fly Me to the Moon” features the voices of Ed Begley Jr., Tim Curry, Christopher Lloyd, Kelly Ripa, Nicollette Sheridan, and others.
