get to work on something uber cool
. This is one of those times.
Last week, we launched a new website for Chasing Ice
, an award-winning documentary film that tells the story of National Geographic photographer James Balog's mission to change the tide of history by gathering undeniable evidence of the Earth's changing climate. Balog and a band of young adventurers deployed revolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutal Arctic to capture a multi-year record of the world's disappearing glaciers.
The film -- filled with hauntingly beautiful videos that compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they vanish at a breathtaking rate -- has won some of the most impressive awards
in the movie business, including the Sundance Film Festival's Excellence in Cinematography Award.
The trailer was just released yesterday. Watch it here.
And be sure to see Chasing Ice on the big screen if you can. It premieres in a dozen cities in November with more showings to come. See the schedule here.
