Join Louie Schwartzberg as he makes a film about the role fungi can play in solving our planet’s gravest problems! His next film project, Fantastic Fungi, is now LIVE on Kickstarter!

Kickstarter Link: http://bit.ly/FantasticFungi

We’ve pulled together the biggest change agents in environmental activism – Paul Stamets, Dr. Andrew Weil, Lyn Lear, Michael Pollan, as well as many others. And Louie will be behind the camera calling the shots!

An all-star team of artists, scientists, doctors, and explorers are joining forces to create a mind-bending, life-affirming film about the mushroom and its mysterious root-like structure: mycelium. What they reveal will blow your mind, and possibly save the planet!

2017 Hurricanes and Aerosols Simulation

By: NASA Goddard

Originally published on Nov 13, 2017

How can you see the atmosphere? By tracking what is carried on the wind. Tiny aerosol particles such as smoke, dust, and sea salt are transported across the globe, making visible weather patterns and other normally invisible physical processes.

This visualization uses data from NASA satellites, combined with mathematical models in a computer simulation allowing scientists to study the physical processes in our atmosphere. By following the sea salt that is evaporated from the ocean, you can see the storms of the 2017 hurricane season.

During the same time, large fires in the Pacific Northwest released smoke into the atmosphere. Large weather patterns can transport these particles long distances: in early September, you can see a line of smoke from Oregon and Washington, down the Great Plains, through the South, and across the Atlantic to England.

Dust from the Sahara is also caught in storms sytems and moved from Africa to the Americas. Unlike the sea salt, however, the dust is removed from the center of the storm. The dust particles are absorbed by cloud droplets and then washed out as it rains.

Advances in computing speed allow scientists to include more details of these physical processes in their simulations of how the aerosols interact with the storm systems.

Originally published on Sep 25, 2017

“One of the best documentaries of 2017. An astonishing accomplishment. Morgen is setting the bar for profile documentaries and changing the rules for his field.”

BRIAN TALLERICO, ROGEREBERT.COM

“Few films this year offer up such lush and formal components. Morgen has made a film of deep emotional beauty. Required viewing for anyone seeking a classic in the making.”

KATE ERBLAND, INDIEWIRE

“Transcends the boundaries of both nature films and biographies. Its epic elements of adventure, romance, and spiritual connection possess a sweep equal to any narrative film. A wondrous, moving, and truly stirring portrait that puts us right there with Goodall to share in her discoveries, propelled by the majestic sounds of Philip Glass. This is a truly stirring legacy portrait.”

FAQ-
Camera is HIKVISION’s DS-2CD2342WD-I. 2688×1520@20fps

Yes it is a real bird. No I did not use strings.
No the footage is not edited. Yes I have YouTube slowing it down to make it easier to see.
Yes it is happening due to the capture frame rate matching the flap speed of the bird. No I did not adjust the camera for the bird.
No this is not a camera or truck commerical/advertisement. But I do like them both.

North American Eclipse Megamovie v0.3

By: Making & Science, Google

Originally uploaded on Aug 22, 2017

This collection of photos was taken by a group of dedicated volunteers across the US during the Aug 21, 2017 total solar eclipse. They have been algorithmically stitched together, based on the time and location of the photo, to give us an extended look at the sun’s atmosphere. Where we have gaps you’ll see the previous image shown for a longer period. As more images are uploaded and processed these will be filled in and the movie will get better and better.
