Ways To Connect

David Weindorf, Ph.D. is the Executive Producer of Between Earth and Sky. He approached Texas Tech Public Media in the spring of 2015 with an idea he was very passionate about. A soil scientist, Dr. Weindorf had been on the Arctic Soil Field Tour in Alaska with Chien-Lu Ping, Ph.D. multiple times and knew how important and valuable the field tour was to not only the science of soil but to our understanding of climate change. David had already crafted a draft of what the film could look like and one thing he was sure of was that Dr.

The driving force behind Between Earth and Sky is Chien-Lu Ping's Arctic Soil Field Tour course conducted by the University of Alaska-Fairbanks. Here is a description of the class from UAF's website: 

Over the course of the production we haven't just been interviewing scientists. Business owners, train conductors, and what we might call just ordinary citizens, have all been included in the film. One of the most unique perspectives we've gotten has come from those who farm the Last Frontier. Alaskan farmers have a unique perspective on just about everything, but one insight we were most interested in was how weather is affecting farming in the state. Not all of which is negative, later winters and earlier summers mean longer growing seasons.
