1. Past the Painted Desert

    01:12:51

    from Jay Meyers Added

    Most people don’t think of the desert as a place to find something. Past the Painted Desert, however, captures three distinguished paleontologists on a unique journey of discovery through Arizona’s Petrified Forest National Park. Chicago filmmaker Jay Meyers follows Robin L. Whatley, PhD, Columbia College Chicago; Bill Amaral, micro-preparator, retired from Harvard University; and Anna K. Behrensmeyer, PhD, research curator from the National Museum of Natural History and others through the Painted Desert’s ancient channels now filled with sediment and atop its highest ridges. There they find 37 new fossil sites — some as old as 208 million years. To capture the stories of personal and paleontological discovery, Meyers uses split screen shots and “keyhole” frames that allow viewers to feel as if they’re discovering something special alongside the film’s subjects. This isn’t just a movie for paleontologists. It’s a film for anyone stepping outside their comfort zone to find clues to the life they’re living — while learning more about themselves along the way. This project is partially supported by a grant from the Albert P. Weisman Award, a private trust sponsored by the Portfolio Center of Columbia College Chicago.

      https://vimeo.com/113740912 In September 2013 a group of riders on 16 Harley Davidson’s started a journey through the Rocky Mountains, from Denver Colorado to Needles California. They rode a circle of 2.300 miles or almost 3.700 km, which eventually led them back to Denver. It was a 10 days ride, where each day topped the one before, with new and exiting adventures. Part of the ride was on Route 66, where they relived the glorious times of the forties. It was a fantastic ride over mountain passes, through canyons and beautiful valleys. Everywhere they went, they only met nice people and the weather was good to them, although it time to time, reminded them who was in charge. This is their story, filmed by few of the riders, edited and produced by Skúli K. Skúlason, who was also one of the riders.

                  I'm finally at the Painted Desert/Petrified Forest. I stay here for 3 days (Holbrook, AZ) and the weather is the best on the first day. One day it rains- hey, this is supposed to be Arizona! The views I shot do not do the actual views justice. There is so much to soak in when you are there in person. I didn't enhance any of the clips either- not enought time and too many vids. Addl sound tracks: -Soft Trees Break The Fall -Third Eye Chakra The only real bird you hear chirping is the black crow. The others are on the sound track.
