Pioneers documentary series didn’t have a proper trailer – but now it (sort of) does. This is also my very first attempt of going into a Hollywood mode.
As you might know each of the 45 minute long episodes portraits one remarkable contemporary thinker, a rebel, a pioneer. There is Julian Barbour (physicist and science historian), Daniel C. Dennett (philosopher), Gregory Chaitin (mathematician) with his intellectual sparring partner Virginia Chaitin (philosopher and Gregory’s wife), there is also Roy Glauber, the Nobel Prize laureate and one of the atomic bomb designers. You will find them all represented in this two minute long snapshot.
The second season of the series is being worked on…
The mighty Hudson river as seen from the Bear Mountain. Filming additional footage for the Pioneers doc series. Six years ago we drove the same winding road with Gregory and Virginia Chaitin. It was spring, all sounds from the valley were damped by the vegetation. Today it’s different – one can hear a conversation from a distance of a mile or so.
One moment, one unrepeatable chemical reaction. No cloning possible, no copy-paste procedure at hand… A time travel like experience.
Testing the 2nd generation of the instant film developed by Impossible, the company established by a bunch of old Polaroid lovers. The pleasure is immense, though a bit pricey. But, you know… one has to have priorities.
I’m gonna use those flimsy information storage devices in the second series of the Pioneers doc series.
