The Perfect Flight — We're excited that our new short doc, The Perfect Flight, will be premiering at The BANFF Mountain Film Festival on October 30th! Very excited to let this out into the wild.
About the film:
When young Shawn Hayes caught a wild falcon in a rough and tumble neighborhood east of LA, he had no idea it would lead him into a lifelong love affair with falconry — training and hunting with wild raptors. The Perfect Flight is a short documentary portrait of Shawn and his falcon.
There's something about shooting time lapses that's magical in and of itself. You set up your camera, do some mental arithmetic, press start, and then you wait. Hours. And when you finally wake up, dazed and disoriented at 3am in the morning, shivering on the desert floor, you look and what you've shot with tremendous satisfaction — or disappointment, as we experienced once when we found a completely fogged-up lens.
Here's a sampling of some of our favorite time lapses from Northern Chile.

We recently finished our edit for The Search for Earth Proxima. It was one of the most interesting projects we've ever gotten to work on. Big thanks to our crew, including Kee Heywood and DPs, Owen Bissell and Andy Quinn. We were honored to interview some very august astronomers, too, including Jack Lissauer, Rus Belikov, Eduardo, Bendek, Bill Diamond (of SETI), and the legendary Bill Borucki, principal architect of the Kepler Mission.
