1. This is a NEW, 25 Minute Version of "The Image Frontier - Making the Invisible Visible", with previously unseen footage and lots of new scenes! (for the Version with German Subtitle go here: vimeo.com/79065488)

    A tribute to the International Space Station Program as well as Dr. Don Pettit, NASA Astronaut and ISS Astrophotographer, "Making the Invisible Visible" explores and celebrates the Art and challenges of Astrophotography orbiting earth Day and Night on board of the International Space Station.

    Don Pettit's innovative photographic work, and his passion for low light photography, has definitely changed the way we see earth from space. Accompanied with great background info on the challenges, techniques and motives of astrophotography aboard the ISS by Don's famous "Luminance" speech, previously unseen footage by Astronaut weaves a compilation of 4 special ISS timelapses ("intro", "startrails", "fisheye" and "aurorae") into a captivating visual experience.

    Welcome aboard the ISS - enjoy stunning photography, videos and timelapses from the Space Station!

    "Making the Invisible Visible" was screened, and received a "honorable mention" at the 6th annual "Imagine Science" Festival in NYC (Oct. 2013, imaginesciencefilms.org/festival/2013-film-awards/).

  2. It was one hell of a journey during the fourteen months making Wyoming Wildscapes II, my second and final (maybe not!) Wyoming related time lapse project. Had plenty of adventures while working on this. Lightning almost got me a couple of times this summer, gear froze up in the winter (literally), and broke a few times (don't think most of the time lapse gear was meant for extended wilderness backpacking), all that fun stuff. Despite any minor set backs, this was without a doubt one of the most fulfilling personal projects I've ever undertaken. Saw some pretty amazing stuff along the way, this part of the country never ceases to amaze and surprise me.
