And you thought fonts were geeky…

Helvetica/Objectified/Urbanized cinematographer Luke Geissb├╝hler is really a science geek at heart. He and his 5-year-old son Max, along with a few friends, made a homemade spacecraft out of a Thai food takeout container, outfitted it with an HD video camera and an iPhone, and a few weeks ago used a weather balloon to launch it into the stratosphere. Their amazing video of the project has now gone viral with millions of views, and he’s getting hounded by the media. On a recent filming trip to Europe for Urbanized, all anyone wanted to talk about was Luke’s spacecraft!

P.S. – Nice use of Helvetica for the titles, Luke…

Absolutely amazing! I actually held my breath waiting for the moment of "burst" and laughed at the bubble gum explosion. Really wonderful!
