Van Allen Project

The early development of a documentary film on the life of astrophysicist James Van Allen, using innovative cinema techniques to explore Allen's work.

In this project we would combine two powerful elements -- a hardware and software platform that allows us to fluidly capture and augment both drawings and spaces and to process and tease out meaning from large scientific datasets; and a wonderful thematic thread that uses the ingenious career of astrophysicist James Van Allen as a lens through which to see American science and technology as it developed over the latter half of the 20th century. The combination of these elements allows us to sketch nothing less than a new medium of exposition.
