Acclaimed cinematographer Haskell Wexler, ASC/SOC, used AJA Video Systems’ Ki Pro Mini portable digital video recorders to capture the landing of Space Shuttle Endeavour at LAX Airport in Los Angeles, California. This footage will be incorporated with the shuttle’s journey through the streets of Los Angeles to form part of a documentary project spearheaded by producer David Knight, to accompany the forthcoming Endeavour exhibit at the California Science Center (CSC).
The Society of Camera Operators (SOC) volunteered to document the journey of the Space Shuttle Endeavour to its final home at the CSC—where it will remain permanently on exhibit—as part of a project being managed by Terbine Entertainment LLC and many other vendors and volunteers.
