Our Production Assistant, Weston Davis, uttered these words as we pulled into to Palmer, AK. The truth is none of us have seen mountains like this before. Growing up in New Mexico I’ve been around the mountains my whole life, but when you make your way to Colorado into the Rockies you really see how majestic mountains can really be. However, even Colorado pales in comparison to the breathtaking peaks of Alaska. Pioneer Peak in Palmer AK is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen in my life.
We've literally been between earth and sky all day. Our flight out of Lubbock was late which was ok because we had an hour and a half layover. Unfortunately they couldn't find us a gate, then they couldn't find the right type of loader to move the luggage. We ended up sprinting through DFW Home Alone style before boarding our flight to Phoenix. The gear, more than likely, didn't make it. Hopefully it reaches Anchorage soon, we had quite the layover in AZ so maybe we'll be reunited. Luckily we took the cameras and lenses carry on.
Hey! Glad you found us. This will be your blog to follow along with as we head out to Alaska to film the movie. First and foremost a huge shout out to our Executive Producer David Weindorf. This was his brainchild, he has put so much into this and it just wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for him.
After remarks by British biochemist Tim Hunt went viral – specifically that women in science can’t take criticism, and cry and fall in love too much to be useful – women around the world working in science thoroughly criticized the Nobel scientist on Twitter, starting the hashtag “distractingly sexy” on Twitter to mock the scientist’s belief that girls in labs are trouble.
