Northeastern University’s Marine Science Center is situated on the rocky coastline of Nahant, Massachusetts, making it the ideal location for students and faculty members to conduct marine research on these coastal habitats and to spearhead Northeastern’s Urban Coastal Sustainability initiative.

Interview setup on Nahant coastline

Although this was a fun shoot and the views were breathtaking, it was also a dangerous setup because we had to move our equipment to the edge of a cliff so we could line up the Boston skyline behind one of the professors we were interviewing.

Over the edge of the cliff

There was also a hair raising moment while leaning over the edge of a high cliff so we could capture the scientists while they were examining tidal pools below.

Two camera shoot on a cliff

It’s never easy to fit succinct sound bites from six different university faculty members into the required 5 minutes of time that was allocated for this film and have it all make sense! But we managed to pull it off and give NU what they were looking for once again!

It was such a pleasure working with NU’s Lori Lennon again on this wonderful and enlightening project. Thanks so much to Lori, Kara Sassone and all the people at NU College of Science.
