Contact: Avid Edition

Contact: Avid Edition

The 1997 movie Contact is based on the 1985 novel by renound scientist and astronomer, Carl Sagan. Sagan and his wife, Ann Druyan, wrote the story outline for the film, but unfortunately Carl passed away in December 1996 before the movie was released.

I have always considered Contact to be an authentic story of how humanity really would react if we were ever to receive communication from an extra terrestrial intelligence. It would raise many social questions and Contact addresses these concerns.

More importantly, Contact also addresses real science theories, questions and methods in a way that is not overly complicated so that the average viewer can digest it.

Several years ago I created a Fan Edit of Contact where I changed the number of attempts to use "the machine" from two to three, by adding a new scientific principle of time dilation related to travelling at or beyond the speed of light. While I feel that version was successful, ultimately I have decided to return to the original "two attempt" story as written by Carl Sagan.

In this new Avid Edition of Contact, there are only some minor changes to the wormhole travel sequence, and I have moved a scene to post credits so that the ending of Contact now plays a little differently. I also changed the music throughout the credits using the 1976 song Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft by The Carpenters.
