The founder of Reelin’ In The Years Productions is Executive Producer of ’ How Can You Mend A Broken Heart’ the new documentary, directed by Frank Marshall, about the legendary Bee Gees.
David Peck, founder and President of Reelin’ In The Years Productions, says, “I was heavily involved in guiding White Horse Pictures in the direction of footage, not just in my archive, but others, that I thought fit the scene, and gave advice on historical accuracy as each cut developed. In the documentary, there is an incredible amount of home (8mm) movie footage from the Bee Gees own archive, and I know a lot about how they should look when they are properly transferred. These Bee Gees films were transferred many years ago and when I saw them in the earlier cut of the film I practically begged them to re-transfer them, which they did, and the results are night and day. In addition, a very large part of the archive in this film (separate from what is owned by the Bee Gees) was licensed by Reelin’ In The Years.”
There are a lot more exciting projects coming up with White Horse Pictures that with the major music archive. Since 1992, Reelin’ In The Years Productions has been recognized as a world leader in footage licensing. The archive houses over 20,000 hours of music footage spanning 90 years and 7,000 hours of in-depth interviews with the 20th century’s icons of Film and Television, Politics, Comedy, Literature, Art, Science, Fashion and Sports, filmed between 1962-2012. The interviews are primarily from the archives of Sir David Frost, The Merv Griffin Show, Rona Barrett and Brian Linehan’s City Lights from Canada.
StormStock Provides Weather Content for 2021 Movie
The post-production team for the 2021 film "13 Minutes" recently acquired 35mm-shot footage from Prairie Pictures’ StormStock for their disaster genre movie. The content, lightning in a night sky, was captured by StormStock founder Martin Lisius using an Arriflex 35-3 camera and Kodak Vision film stock.
"13 Minutes" involves four families who are "tested in a single day when a tornado hits, forcing paths to cross and redefining the meaning of survival," according to IMDb.
The film is directed by Lindsay Gossling and stars Amy Smart, Thora Birch and Anne Heche.
Prairie Pictures’ StormStock produces and licenses premium weather and climate footage for the world’s best TV and film productions since 1993.
Yesterday’s total Solar Eclipse was the only total solar eclipse of the year in fascinating NOAA footage. Although it was mainly visible from Earth in parts of South America, one of their satellites had a perfect view of the moon’s shadow moving across the Earth.
The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is an excellent source of oceanic and satellite footage for use in web and documentary productions.
Hail is frozen precipitation in the form of lumps of ice, or "stones" created when rain is pushed above the freezing level by a thunderstorm’s updraft. Hail stones grow larger with subsequent passes until they become too heavy to be supported by the updraft and fall to earth. It’s something the cinematographers for Prairie Pictures’ StormStock know well.
"Even small hail, around an inch in diameter, can be deafening inside a house or car," StormStock founder Martin Lisius said. "Imagine what softball-size hail would be like."
Lisius intercepted hail like that near Burkburnett, Texas earlier this year while tracking a slow moving supercell thunderstorm, a large, rotating storm infamous for producing giant chunks of ice. This time, the hail was 5.33" in diameter, larger than a softball. In June 2003, Lisius was on the storm that produced world record size hail at Aurora, Nebraska. That hail measured 7.0 inches (17.78 cm) in diameter with an 18.75 inch (47.63 cm) circumference. "I was filming on the south edge of the storm looking north up the highway into town and could see giant hail exploding on the pavement, and could hear an intense hail roar," Lisius said.
SpaceX’s Starship SN8 rocket has exploded during touchdown after a six-and-a-half-minute test flight. The flight was the highest yet for the rocket ship Elon Musk hopes will ferry humans to Mars, with the prototype shooting for an altitude of eight miles. The fiery landing occurred when low fuel tank pressure caused the ship to descend too quickly in the final stages.
