Galileo

Last week, Jynx Productions produced part of a special about the Black Lives Matter movement for Pro7, the German television network. We delivered our cut last night, and the piece aired today. Big thanks to the team for pulling such an important project together with such a tight turnaround.

Here's the promo!

Derzeit gibt es weltweit kaum ein relevanteres Thema als die Bewegung, die sich unter dem #BlackLivesMatter geformt hat. #ProSieben zeigt aus diesem Grund heute Abend, 8. Juni, um 20:15 Uhr ein Spezial zu den Protesten. #Galileo

Still one of our favorite projects. I’ll never forget the hot, crackling earth beneath our feet as we ventured across the freshly made lava burrens in the wee hours of the morning. We felt like intrepid adventurers out to film the lava flow before sunrise. Our sneakers melted but the shots were stunning.

Finishing up our story on daredevil lava photographers in Hawaii - a great first project for our new Thunderbolt-based edit suite.

We knew going into this shoot that working with a bunch of successful gold prospectors in Montana would likely be fascinating. But we honestly didn’t expect to catch gold fever.

But there’s something about finding gold - being the first person to release it from a million-year-old rock, and the first person to touch it - that is beyond fascinating. We watched Rob and his crew find a bunch of gold during our three day visit, then he helped us to locate and pan for it ourselves. And we started to seriously day dream about moving to Montana to prospect and strike it rich…

Let the good times roll. Thanks The Forecaster for making such a fuss. We are duly honored.

There used to be hundreds of factories in the US making baseball hats. Today, only three remain. We were lucky enough to have filmed in one of them.

Unionwear Hats in Newark, NJ opened their doors to us and showed us where more than 2000 caps are made everyday. 175 cutters, stitchers and seamstresses work long hours. A lot of them have been in this same job for decades, and are incredibly proud of it.

Being here felt like being transported back to another era, one where Made in the US of A was still commonplace. It’s an absolute rarity these days - we were thrilled to be able to catch a glimpse of it.

Thanks Unionwear Hats for granting us access to your fascinating facility.

MLK's 1964 Visit to Bowdoin

We were very grateful to have had the opportunity to produce this piece for our friends at Bowdoin College in honor of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Thanks to everyone who worked with us on this production.

The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. visited Bowdoin—at the invitation of students—in May 1964. Nearly fifty-five years later, event organizers and…

It's December, and that means our annual Christmas story is in full swing at Jynx! Last year, we featured German Holiday markets around the world - this year it's all about Christmas in New York. What an awesome shoot this weekend to wrap up production for the year (well...almost).

Normally, we like to shoot everything on-the-go and let people tell their stories in the moment.

But sometimes the conversation runs a bit longer and a little deeper, as was the case when we interviewed Karen, who walked us through her experience of leaving Scientology.

So we decided to set the scene, then just sit, and listen...

Blu Homes Install

Flashback to our shoot about foldable luxury houses … yup, that’s a thing. They are manufactured in a factory, packed on trucks, installed by crane and then unfolded on location. Cuts home construction time down by more than half. And looks mighty cool!

It's Jynx week at @Galileo! Three of our stories will air this week, all three loosely relating to the Midterm elections next week. From Trump's questionable business dealings, to people fleeing the US for Canada, to conspiracy theorists ... these might not be the most "fun" topics, but as usual, the stories are full of fascinating characters. So tune in Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.
We, for once, will sit back and enjoy after four weeks of traveling, shooting, editing, and talking to lots and lots of Trump friends and foes ...!

Kerry Brookes, Jynx Productions
"The most rewarding story was 'Fake News: Hawai'i's Volcanic Gems'. It involved: procuring hard hats and breathing masks for our crew for a pre-dawn media tour up an actively erupting volcano with the Hawai'ian National Guard, reaching out to a local gemologist whose office was being temporarily relocated because their building was evacuated due to the volcanic activity, requesting a small-plane volcano flyover, and organizing a trip to a very remote green-sand beach in a national park that could only be reached on foot!

There were lots of hurdles to jump to get insurance and the proper permits to shoot almost exclusively on national park locations, and there were a lot of late-night calls due to the six hour time difference, but the footage we got was SO rewarding! Not to mention it was pretty surreal to be texting with the Hawai'ian National Guard about what kind of air filters to get for the gas masks!"

Lost Places America, Shopping Mall

Kerry Brookes, Jynx Producitons
"'Lost Place: Shopping Mall' was a tough one - finding an abandoned mall that was not too run down to have been condemned but one that would be interesting on camera involved a LOT of research. Finding the right mall for us meant one that was fully closed to the public, ensuring that it was still standing, determining ownership and whether the owners might consider allowing us to film, and parsing out what future plans the surrounding community might have for the space. Thankfully there is an active online family of incredibly dedicated people investigating shopping malls, their architectural and social place in history, and their evolution in today's shopping era. Their YouTube videos became my life for about a month!"

A few years ago, we had the adventure of a lifetime on Maui with this guy: Chuck Patterson, easily one of the most chill badass people we've met. Chuck was testing his gear that day for a mind-blowing stunt: He was preparing to ride one of the world's fiercest surf breaks, Jaws ... on SNOW SKIS! Wearing snow boots, binding, poles and all.

A few days later, with cameras rolling, and choppers whirring above, Chuck was towed out to the break for an epic ride. The result was an award-winning documentary we produced and shot for Red Bull Bullit: "Skiing Jaws"

Melissa Makes Mushroom Mush

Melissa Gabriel, Staff Editor
"The funniest story I have worked on to date was probably "Mushroom Furniture". Mostly because I think the idea of furniture made out of mushrooms is just hilarious and because I had to make an appearance in the film by making my own little mushroom creation. It was a fun experience."

Picking Wild Blueberries, Autumn in Alaska

Melissa Gabriel, Staff Editor:
"Favorite Jynx story to work on was definitely Akutaq. The footage was so beautiful and I loved getting a sneak peak into a different culture. Getting to see a day in the life of someone with a culture that was different from mine. Everyday activities, social events they attended and meals they prepped were all really interesting to watch. Not to mention all the gorgeous footage of Fall in Alaska."

We go on a lot of shoots. We've been to all US states, and to a bunch of other countries. But so far, nothing has quite come close to our experience filming in Cuba.
The atmosphere, the colors, the beauty ... but above all, the people. Almost everyone we encountered and interviewed was open, full of life, full of stories, and always interested in our Americano lifestyle and view of the world.

Six months ago, we wrapped our full-length documentary "Forever Young - The Quest for Eternal Life". This was a project that took us from the beaches of Colombia to remote islands in Japan, from Vancouver Island through Santa Monica and into the Arizona desert.

You never know when you first start researching and pitching a project, how successful it will be after completion. How good are the characters? Will the storylines pan out? Will real, exciting stuff happen once our cameras are rolling?

20 shoot days and two months of post-production later, we had our answer. In this case, almost everything came together. Luckily, the audience thought so, too. Our doc aired in a primetime slot on Sunday night on a major German network, and drew almost 2 million viewers, way above the average

Unfortunately, the full version is only viewable online in German-speaking countries, but if you're interested in watching, we can send you a private link! Just email [email protected]

One year ago… we found ourselves on a fascinating shoot at Alcor HQ with their customers Maria and Gary. Suspended in those steel tanks they are walking by are people... frozen solid!

Alcor IS the Cryonics Business. People pay beaucoup bucks to be frozen within moments of clinical death. They hope to be thawed and revived at a later date, once science has figured out how to reanimate them and cure their ailments.
Maria and Gary are strolling by their future. One day, Maria and Gary will be placed in one of those tanks.

Can't lie... it did feel very eerie in that room, and the concept is really hard to grasp if you don’t believe in it 100%.

But despite some of the gruesome details of what will happen to them one day - these two were contagiously optimistic about the future!

It truly is one of the best perks of our job - stepping into someone else's world and meeting some incredibly interesting minds.
