Monumental Mysteries - Travel Channel

I have just returned home from shooting a round of segments for Monumental Mysteries - Season 2 and it occurs to me that I never got around to sharing the adventures I had shooting season 1.   On our epic Odyssey of Monumental Mysteries we traveled to landmarks like the Niagara Falls, the grand Canyon, Yosemite National Park, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Alcatraz just to name a few.  We went to Sylacauga, Alabama to tell the story of a women, the only human in history, on earth, to be struck by a meteor that fell from space.  The meteor crashed through her roof,  bounced off of her HiFi and  finally struck her while napping on the couch.  We went to the mythical "crossroads" in Clarksdale, Mississippi and interviewed a great grandson of Robert Johnson.

A highlight of the series for me was getting to work with several super talented jib operators around the country in telling these stories and capturing these landmarks.  Of note, was Jimmy Dunn.
