A trip of a life time for two young Academy Cadets from Kings Point – The “Hidden Federal Academy”. This enlightening video of a resupply mission to McMurdo Science Base in Antarctica was done with six different GOPRO’s using time lapse and video. These short four minutes are only a small glimpse of the entire operation. Thanks go out to Tanner Evens and Nick Gioino from the class of 2017. Go Mariners!!!
Once again, take a break from collecting. It is a big world. Hopefully these kids will stash away some silver for their early retirements!!! I am helping two graduates do that now. For more information on the Academy just sent me a message.
A salute to those individuals who travel the world delivering the goods we all use everyday. Congrats go out to many Kings Pointers and state maritime school graduates who take to the task everyday!!! Take a five minute break from the rigors of collecting and stacking those coins…
This time lapse footage was made by George Leonov while working on a containership the MV Carat going around the Baltic Sea and North Europe. Over 15,000 photos were used to put this video together, all summed up in five minutes. Access provided by gCaptain who shares access to the world of Maritime shipping and transportation.
This shows a very fast paced environment, sometimes as little as eight hours sailing between ports and many berth shifts while loading and unloading cargo.
Note the precise ship handling while maneuvering the ship and without any assistance of the tug boats. Enjoy!
