New hurricane documentary published

It’s been a few months since I have posted anything here. The reason? Been quite busy playing filmmaker. And now, the results of those efforts are revealed with the release of my brand new “Tracking the Hurricanes” documentary.

The first in the series was produced in 2004 after the big season that brought hurricanes such as Charley and Ivan. Then, I produced another segment after the historic 2005 season. It wasn’t until 2008 that I had enough material for another program and that was the last time…until now.

We’ve had hurricanes since 2008, that’s for sure but I just didn’t have enough to put together a full-length program. So, after the 2016 season, I figured it was time.

The result is a two-part series that spans 2009-2016 and takes you on a journey with us as we develop new technologies, including the weather balloon project: HURRB.

We also worked towards building a better unmanned camera system that would ultimately be put in to to use during hurricanes Hermine and Matthew in 2016. However, the technology has to be tested and we did so during winter storms and flood events in the face of a lack of U.S. landfalling hurricanes. Those efforts paid off and by the time we get to 2016, we were ready.

So here it is, part one of the new “Tracking the Hurricanes” series. I will post part two on Friday, March 3. Enjoy and please feel free to share with anyone!
