NEW HORIZONS [Original Version]


It has been a great honor to work on this film, commissioned by the National Space Society, to promote NASAs New Horizons spacecraft and its historic reconnaissance mission to Pluto and its system of moons on July 14 2015 - the very first exploration of this system in human history.

I got to work closely with the missions principal investigator Alan Stern and am grateful for his and the rest of his team's confidence in me to make this film.
