Joey Shanks (ShanksFX from PBS Digital Studios) created this video powered by awesome power of magnetic putty.
PBS Digital Studios and Shanks FX used magnetic putty in parts of their recent film short SCI-FLY. They posted this extended cut of special effects shots a few days ago. Is this what you’d see in real time? No. These clips are sped up. The actual motion of magnetic putty consuming other objects is barely perceptible in real time.
Martha Morales uses her extensive knowledge of video pre- and post-production to help create EarthSky science videos in Spanish and English. As a Video Producer for EarthSky, her special focus is the EarthSky en Español 60-second video series. She acts as the EarthSky lead set coordinator, camera operator, and story producer – capturing interviews with the world’s leading English and Spanish-speaking scientists and editing them into an accessible, informative and effective message. To accomplish this, she draws from her B.S. in Radio-Television-Film from the University of Texas as well as her experience working in television with PBS El Paso and Channel 6 Austin. Growing up in El Paso, TX, Martha embraces the dual identities that define the U.S.-Mexico border. She is bilingual in English and Spanish. Martha’s favorite thing about EarthSky? The amazing science shows that inspire wonder and hope about our universe and world.
