[science fiction] This story [trilogy of Spring Break, Spring Returns, Spring Fling] turns the whole cosmos inside-out, and presents reality in a way you never learned it in the ordinary schools - it's about four post-doctorate university researchers [a woman and three men] who slip-out late one night to hop the fence at an obsolete USNavy yard, and look inside a curious old rusting submarine roped to the dock ... but which turns-out to be so modern inside that after a pre-programmed visit to the South Pole, they ride right out of this cosmos - a little astronomical, linguistical, mathematical, and systematical [ALMS Program] exploration. Subsequently they return to Earth, but find Earth-society subtly alien - and they retrace their steps to return to the infinite outercosmos, forever ... but not without leaving a trail - and thence commences a cosmic exodus.

The movie shall be available primarily digitally recorded wide-screen [2:1] 'stereo-eyes-ed' on digital video disk or digital video tape. The initial 'shoot' shall be direct minute-by-minute to giga-byte hard-drive, 4 megapixels/frame, wavelet-compressed, copy-saved to CDROM - the digitized sound and music edited in synchronized frames-fractions of a second - and the final product released on HDDVideo Disk. The advantage of digital video is its reproducibility for the future of both broadcast FDTV [Full Definition or stereo-eyes-ed] and movie-house. Image generation shall be further enhanced and assisted by state-of-the-art computer facility. The final result shall be viewable stereo-eyes-ed '3.5D' with white 'sexichrome' or polarized safety-goggles ... telecined celluloid film and standard video disk and tape versions may be available.

[The music exampled specified in the following outline and screenwrite is the Strategic-Director's selection from hundreds of CD's of existing works by artists whose timbre and lyrics fit each on-screen activity, and is not otherwise representative of project SesQuaTercet and its purposes ... beginning with a little unstifled a capella, it jumps right into the modern dance-rhythm musiques: a 'space-bopera']
