Clement to Record Original Score at George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch

(Hollywood,CA) Award-winning film composer SHAWN CLEMENT to score the much anticipated 3-D, CGI, sci-fi film QUANTUM QUEST. The film boasts an all-star cast including sci-fi film icons Chris Pine, Samuel L. Jackson, Hayden Christensen, Amanda Peet, Robert Picardo, Brent Spiner, James Earl Jones, William Shatner, Mark Hamill, and Astronaut Neil Armstrong. Clement’s Sci-Fi music credits include such projects as BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and BATMAN: RISE OF SIN TZU. He will record his original score for QUANTUM QUEST at George Lucas’ legendary Skywalker Ranch in April. QUANTUM QUEST premieres in theaters in late 2009.

QUANTUM QUEST is a new 3-D, computer animated, large format, action-adventure film that interweaves animated sequences with actual space imagery captured from seven ongoing NASA and NASA/ESA space missions. QUANTUM QUEST takes place in an atomic world, where the forces of the Core and the forces of the Void battle for the fate of the universe. The Core is a kind being, who lives inside all suns; his children are protons, photons, and neutrinos. The Void is that which existed before the Big Bang; he hates everything and everyone in the universe for invading his nothingness. The Void has an army of anti-matter that he uses to try and destroy the forces of the Core. QUANTUM QUEST centers on the story of Dave, a young photon, who is forced out of the Sun on a journey of discovery. Dave must get to the Cassini Space Craft and save it from the forces of the Void.
