This was shot 2 hours prior to Shuttle Endeavor’s landing at LAX (vimeo.com/49952767) You’ll notice two strokes of bad luck:
1. The heat rose significantly in those two hours causing significant heat waves in the final video. (link above)
2. The Shuttle didn’t line up on the southernmost runway at LAX (there are two South runways… something I now know all too well!) and well… the rest if history.
Shot with a RED Epic at 4K with a Canon 800mm 5.6 lens and 1.4X Converter at 120 frames per second. I decided to remove the teleconverter to allow for the fact that the shuttle atop the 747 would fill up the frame even more and also went to 5K for the final shot of the Endeavor.

Intricate mechanical and chemical separation is needed to extract and recover pigment from US currency.
The ink is then re-stabilized, divided into individual doses and packaged into medical vials.
