  • Boulder Photographer Jamie Kripke Captures the Beautiful Geometery of I.M. Pei's NCAR Building

    / Comments (0)

    The Mesa Laboratory, also known as the National Center for Atmospheric Research, sits at the base of the flatirons in South Boulder. Jamie Kripke remembers seeing it for the first time as a college freshman, then in Woody Allen's Sleeper, and was struck by its clean, otherworldly lines and its unbelievable perch, looking down and east over a sea of midwestern flatness.

    The building was designed by I.M. Pei in 1961, and built in 1964 — so 2014 marks NCAR's 50th birthday. Pei based his design on the Anasazi cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde, and used bush-hammered concrete and locally sourced aggregate to help the structure blend with its environment.

    Jamie wanted to capture the abstract, conceptual nature of the architecture, in a way that recognizes the project's age, and its significance as a landmark in modernism. Mission accomplished.

  • 'The Noble Spirit' Documents the Life of Ski Adventurer and World Traveler Fred Noble – Via Denver's Wit House Films

    / Comments (0)

    This project started last summer in San Francisco, California when videographers Andrea Johnson and Bob Holmes asked if Wit House Films could help them finish a documentary they had been filming for the past three years. New to documentary production, Andrea and Bob had shot hundreds of hours of footage and interviews, but were struggling to pull it together. Assuming a producer role, Wit House brought in Dane Henry from Deep Roots Media to work on the edit and provide special cinematography. After several trips out to Portland to shoot additional b-roll and interviews, a final piece has been wrapped in time for Fred to be part of the premiere in Hood River, Oregon, on April 9.

    "In December 2010, ski adventurer and world traveler Fred Noble was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease. Since his diagnosis, Fred has dedicated his time to raising funds and awareness about the disease. Fred has faced this final, most challenging obstacle in his life with vigor and fortitude, working to inspire his friends and others to join him in his quest to do as much as he possibly can to help eradicate the disease."
