Verglas Media’s Owner and Creative Director, Victoria Weeks, spent over a decade as a science media producer at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. During her NASA career, she focused on creating short documentary videos for use in a number of the agency’s premiere missions’ education and outreach programs. In addition, she developed the art of videography and editing for spherical films, starting with the world’s first film for Science On a Sphere, Footprints (2006). In-between spherical film productions, she continued writing, producing, shooting and editing educational videos for use on the web and television, and for use in congressional and corporate presentations. Her work has taken her all over the world; from huge satellite cleanrooms in California, to mountain peaks in Hawaii to ice sheets at the geographic North Pole. Later, she applied the technical skills gained in SOS film and 3D video production to create an inspiring promotional short film Pursuit of Light (2012) for NASA’s Hyperwall - a 4k+ display technology developed by the agency.
PURSUIT OF LIGHT
Be inspired. From Earth, to our moon and sun, Mars and the edge of our galaxy, NASA continues to explore. Created for the big screen, this HD version still conveys the feeling of grandeur that is our universe. Enjoy!
In one of NASA's most captivating visualizations to date, we see the complex, striking beauty that represents our planet's ocean currents. Despite conjuring up the work of revered artist Vincent Van Gogh, this imagery is based on the outcome of multiple scientific endeavors.
TIROS-1: A FORECAST REVOLUTION
Our society has come miles, literally, from its humble beginnings of weather observation. All of this started with a small, unassuming satellite called TIROS-1. This short piece was made to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of its launch, and to give a brief look at the emergence of NASA and NOAA's earth observing satellites.
NASA GODDARD IN 3D!
Perhaps not as well-known as the Kennedy or Johnson Space Centers, Goddard boasts the largest coalition of research scientists, engineers and technologists in the United States. NASA's first space center continues to play a vital role in our understanding of our planet, solar system and universe.
DISCOVERY COMES TO DULLES!
All good things must come to an end. For the Space Shuttle Discovery, the end itself was pretty spectacular. Mounted aboard a specially equipped 747 jumbo jet, it flew into Dulles airport on April 17, 2012. NASA expert and shuttle aficionado Dhyan Emmanual told the story from behind the scenes - one not surprisingly full of emotion and excitement.
