    Neil goes on to say "For me, that is the most profound revelation of 20th century astrophysics and I look forward to what the 21st century will bring us, given the frontiers that are now unfolding."

  3. Every frame in this video is a photograph taken by astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
    I created this timelapse on a long weekend after discovering the image library online. I used Photoshop and Sony Vegas to edit and compile the footage.
    The music is a track from one of my favorite sci-fi movies, Sunshine. I thought the music and imagery would fit well together.

    Indie-documentary (well it's just me really) about author and polemicist Christopher Hitchens. I hope you enjoy this little film of the clips, speeches, and thoughts that made me cherish 'The Hitch'.

    Authors note:

    I was looking for a documentary about The Hitch to watch but
    I could never find one. I waited and waited. Finally I figured:
    "Why don't I just make one?". That was the inspiration for this project.
    I did not make it to gain financially as I do not own most of the
    footage used.

    I simply wanted to in my own small way, further the legacy of Christopher Hitchens.

    Thanks for watching.
