Take a Trip to Space on a Tiny Balloon

Friday, October 15, 2010

This summer, Luke Geissbuhler, the cinematographer behind the mokumentary-style movie Bruno and the upcoming film The Virginity Hit, masterminded a very different kind of movie.  With nothing more than a weather balloon, an HD camera and a GPS device, Gessbuhler and his 9-year old son created a homemade spacecraft and set out to capture its journey on video. The duo encased the camera, GPS and a parachute in a foam container, tied it to the end of the balloon and released it near their home in Newburgh, New York. Hoping to view the video once the balloon fell back to earth, Geissbuhler tucked a note inside the foam container promising a reward to anyone who returned the spacecraft to its rightful creators.

New Star Rises in the Pinkett-Smith Dynasty

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

The next time you hit the club, you may find yourself rocking out to a song sung by a nine-year old.

I'm amazed at the buzz swirling around Willow Smith's first single 'Whip My Hair.' The song is sassy, confident, and already receiving comparisons to Rihanna. Of course, it's no secret that Willow comes from an entertainment dynasty: she is the daughter of Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith and at the tender age of nine, she's inked a record deal with Jay-Z's Roc Nation.
