Currently on location for the National Geographic Society/Waitt Institute.
Our mission: Two night dives a day for 10 days in the remotest pristine reefs of the Solomon Islands shooting the EPIC underwater in search of new biofluorescent proteins using advanced high intensity blue LED lights and dichroic filters with 5 PhD's from Yale and CUNY (say that 3 times fast).
The scientists are blogging from the field for the Science section of the New York Times.
Diving all night, then editing 5K by day on a laptop with sat link uploads to the NYT - well that's just incredibly cool.
This is a quantum leap in the use of RED technology underwater since the first dive with RED ONE #8 in Nov '07 at Catalina. First, my team wins a Prime Time EMMY in cinematography with our RED ONEs and now we are discovering new proteins for science with the EPIC.
You can follow our ground breaking discoveries in the NYT all week.
Below are the first three posts.
BTW - shooting the behind the scenes inderwater with the new Century Optics fisheye lens on the iPhone 4s
