For the launch of Intel’s new 2nd Generation Core processors, we created the Visual Life campaign. Opening with the Invitation Film, we encouraged viewers to upload and share their images and films on the main Visual Life website (intel.com/visuallife).
As further inspiration, we are creating a series of documentaries about the lives of inspirational bloggers. Bloggers who live particularly visual lives. The first film explores the life of street style fashion blogger The Sartorialist (Scott Schuman). Documenting his unique approach to photography and his keen eye for style, we give viewers a glimpse into the Visual Life of the man behind the lens.
In 1963 Aerojet-General built a rocket manufacturing plant in the middle of the Everglades. They were hoping to build rockets for the Apollo moon mission. The rockets were built and tested in a 150 ft. deep silo, the deepest hole ever dug in Florida.
In addition to the site, they dug the largest canal cutting through the Everglades to the Atlantic ocean. Because the rockets were so big (solid fueled), they could only be transfered by barge.
The Saturn rockets ended up with liquid fuel and Aerojet never got the contract. The site was abandoned in 1969, along with the rocket in the silo. It's been sitting there for nearly 50 years.
