This is the 2D version of a 3D production. It is 9 minutes and 40 seconds long, including credits.
It was created for James Thorne, Ph.D., a research ecologist at UC Davis, who is Executive Producer, Principal Investigator, and Script Author. Heather Segale is the Producer for the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center (UC Davis TERC), and a 3D photographer.
I was the director, narrator, 3D CG and effects creator, 3D stereoscopic designer and video editor, and I took the scenic 3D pictures for the movie.
The narration and music mix is final. Music courtesy of Rounder Records, "Brand New Old Tyme Music" by Mark Schatz.
Although the core theme is the mapping of forest change in the central Sierra Nevada, the movie also provides a good orientation to the geography of Lake Tahoe's regional setting. You will see some landscape visualization effects you have never seen before, as I created them all for this movie, specifically.
The 3D version is shown at the UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center, Incline Village NV. It will likely be available on Blu-Ray3D as well, and on YouTube3D, in addition to Vimeo. The production was optimized for Blu-Ray3D viewing.
