AUSTRALIAN TV SERIES ROCKETS TO THE MOON WITH SPACEX AND NASA

Art TV show, Put Some Colour in Your Life, received the exciting news that all 22 seasons of their art series will be included in the Lunar Codex.

As part of the ‘museum on the moon’ Put Some Colour in your Life will be rocketed into space via the Astrobotic Griffin / NASA VIPER ROVER / SpaceX Falcon Heavy mission, headed to the Lunar South Pole and due to land in 2023.

Graeme Stevenson OAM, CEO and founder of Put some Colour in Your Life was over the moon when payload coordinator and curator Dr. Samuel Peralta (Physicist), confirmed that the close to 300 artists who feature in the series will be represented.

Filmed over the past 12 years across seven countries, the series which is based in Murwillumbah, Northern NSW, Australia, films 24-minute TV art documentaries about artists in their studios.

“When I began this business back in 2009,  my vision was to build a library of the minds of artists, preserving a digital record of creative spirit, culture, and techniques for future generations”, Graeme explained,” I had no idea that the library would be kept on the moon.  It is just mind blowing! “

“The Lunar Codex is a project to preserve contemporary creative arts for future generations, a message-in-a-bottle to the future,” explained Dr. Samuel Peralta, creator of the enterprise. “It is sending the work of 5000+ creative artists to the Moon in three lunar exhibits / time capsules to be launched via three separate missions to the Moon over 2021-2023.”

Put some Colour in Your Life will be joining the Polaris Collection, on the third mission and is mentioned in the Peregrine collection in the first mission.   Polaris data will be on nickel-shielded memory cards. The series archive will join other short and full-length films already included in the time capsule, including several feature films and short films, documentaries, and an Emmy Award winning film.

Some of the Colour in Your Life artists included in this collection are Ken Done, Ernie Dingo, Eric Rhoads, the world’s leading art promoter, Joseph Zbukvic, number one water colour artist in the world, De Gillett, Alvaro Castagnet, Herman Pekel.

You can see the full list here:  https://www.colourinyourlife.com.au/featured-artists/

“Our hope is that future travellers who find these time capsules will discover some of the richness of our world today,” Dr. Samuel Peralta said. “The Lunar Codex speaks to the idea that, despite wars and pandemics and climate upheaval, humankind found time to dream, time to create art.”

 HEART OF THE SEA 1X70’

Imagine paddling solo, 50 miles for 17 days, during the most shark-infested summer Australia has ever seen. Endurance athlete and child abuse survivor Damien Rider took matters into his own hands to find peace and face his inner demons. On what many thought to be an impossible journey, he set off paddling 800km solo without support crew on a paddleboard, propelled by just his hands, from his home in Coolangatta to Bondi Beach in Sydney.

RISE ABOVE 1X60′

Damien Rider’s endurance challenges are all epic, unique and designed to grab the attention of those who most need to hear his story. Damien has skateboarded across Route 66, run and paddled non-stop around Phuket, ridden a 1950’s rickshaw over 260kms and pushed a 2 tonne vehicle for over 40kms on Australia’s Gold Coast. Each of these events grabbed global headlines and helped thrust his cause into the spotlight. Rise Above chronicles his journey to bring awareness to childhood abuse, while completing some of the most challenging endurance feats to date.

Turning to our documentary slate and we offer two new heart-warming tales exploring the spirit of humanity and the determination of humans to facilitate significant change and growth – both personally, and as role models for those around them.

A Head Full of Doubt, takes in seven years of the incredible success of the B.A.M program in Chicago. Previously considered the murder capital of America, this engaging documentary showcases the beauty that comes from mentoring youth in a city that needs it most. Curated and developed by Tony DiVittorio, and inspired by his youth without a father figure, the B.A.M program has made headlines world wide for its encouragement and guidance of kids on the border of adulthood.

Shot across three continents and over a five year journey, The World’s Best Film follows twelve individuals striving for greatness. Thailand gives us the World’s best taxi driver while in Sweden we are introduced to the World’s best town planner. This is a traveling tale celebrating the human endeavor to be the best you can be. Fun, quirky and possibly The World’s Best Film!

 

This year has produced many things. The greatest, we think, is the many stories emerging, telling tales of community spirit and collaboration. Helping the vulnerable and passing it forward, during what has been a difficult and unprecedented time for businesses and us as humans.

We have curated some of the best Covid stories in our new Short Content selection. Food Forward delivers three short documentaries shining a light on businesses adapting to the pandemic driven food supply chain issues, in the US. Highlighting three sectors – The Plate, The Sea and The Farm – Food Forward delivers on all fronts, with stories of community and businesses coming together to help each other survive.

Straight from a remote Navajo community, comes a story of survival in Covid Nations. When an Australian naturopath and herbalist, finds herself in the centre of an indigenous community with limited health facilities, she rolls up her sleeves and begins educating and steering the group through the only pandemic any of them have known.

Covid Nations articulates the many challenges of remote communities navigating Covid with little access to mainstream healthcare. Beautifully shot, this short documentary is a thought-provoking tale, offering an alternative viewpoint of the 2020 story.

You can view sizzles of all our new releases here.

A head full of doubt documentary

A Head Full of Doubt

By documentary, news

We are excited to add the powerful documentary A Head Full of Doubt to our catalogue in the lead up to MIPCOM.

In what has been a year of bad news stories, A Head Full of Doubt, set in Chicago, offers hope to a generation of kids desperate for direction and encouragement.

In Chicago, 2008 was a violent year culminating with high murder rates, escalating gang activity and low graduation rates. This set the stage for what is best described as the city’s tipping point.

On Chicago’s south and west sides a large percentage of boys grow up lacking fathers figures. Enter Tony DiVittorio, a high school councillor, who set out to lead a generation of youth by creating a male character development program called B.A.M. (Becoming A Man).

His goal was to build men of integrity by focusing on core values like respect, responsibility and self-determination.

Over seven years, filmmaker Jason Weisner began documenting the B.A.M program and Tony DiVittorio’s personal story of empowerment, which continues to help young men today.

What emerged is an inspirational documentary about a generation of youth who are desperately searching for someone to believe in them.

Now available for worldwide release, A Head Full of Doubt is a poignant reminder of the power of humanity.
