Chicago Astronomers on film opportunity
Chicago Astronomer Curt has a good friend that is making an independent film that has an astronomical angle to it - and we are invited to participate....
Thanks Joseph .
The film is called COIN TOSS it's a comedy about life and chances .It's a completely Chicago movie !
Here is the scene:
1) Day time - We see four to six of Astronomers watching the sky they are excited to this event to happen they been waiting for it for long. Their caps , T-shirts etc shows that they are Chicago Astronomers (may be we can have small banner or board if you already have) .
We also see telescopes or any other regular equipments that astronomers would use . Then we see from their faces that they see a meteor falling through the sky the fireball passes through the sky and disappears in woods with a big bang . Astronomers hug , claps excitement to see a life time event .
2) Location : I am open for suggestions in fact , may I request you guys to pick a location . Adler planetarium site would be great but I am not sure about who to contact for permissions etc.
3) This will be a 2 hrs shoot from start to finish . Date and Time I am thinking of doing it on 11 september from 8 AM to 10 AM . Please let me know. We can work out other dates if it's in convinient.
4) I do have few questions about meteor's that may be you and your friends can help me with .
I want to get all the technical facts right .
Please let me know if you have any other questions . Thank you so much for your help I am very excited to have real astronomers in my film !!
I think this will be fun to do and I would like to be part of it. I will work out the details with Satya, but if you are interested and would like to be a movie star, let me know.
I'm ready for my close up, Joe
