“The Last Shuttle” Shot with Z-Finder Pro

For the past 30 years, the Space Shuttle Program has teamed up with NASA and the US to make vital efforts to inform us on the world that we live in today. Engaging in more than just traditional film and photography, LightSpeed Media, and the San Diego Air & Space Museum will be covering NASA’s last Space Shuttle mission at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida by the end of 2011. LightSpeed Media will be following the operation and production from the final launch, the launch and mission itself, along with bonus footage involving anyone from the Astronauts to the drivers moving the shuttle. Some other footage will also include the decommission-retirement of the Space Shuttle.

Zacuto, USA recently had the chance to team up with one LightSpeed Media photographer working on the scene of “The Last Shuttle” Project, Bob Fisher, to test out the Zacuto Z-Finder 3x, Fast Draw, and the Z-Cage. Some technologies Lightspeed Media’s team will be working to document the end of an era will include 3D, immersive 360 imagery both in motion and stills, and the latest in sound recording. LightSpeed Media’s mission with teaming up with Zacuto, USA on this historic event is to share the behind-the-scenes efforts and to express to future generations a better understanding of the elaborate undertaking, the dedication and the pride of everyone involved.

The San Diego Air & Space Museum will use this innovative experience utilizing 3D and time-lapse photography by creating displays and other materials such as iPad apps for museums, educational settings and various outlets through out the world. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tell the Shuttle Story will preserve its history in a way that has never been done before.
