Each film features live industrial footage and illustrates technical processes using vivid animations and graphics. All Silicon Run titles are available on DVD and by streaming. »read more

I market semiconductors and I had no idea of the complexity involved in their manufacture – it was sort of like a black art – until I saw the Silicon Run film. I found the information very usefu and approachable.Theresa Buckholz

One of the best technical films I have ever seen. Both films are very useful to us.Jim Bearman
