Prepare yourself to be wowed! From high in the sky to deep in the ocean, National Geographic’s clever Tech Team members Eric Berkenpas, Mike Shepard, and Corey Jaskolski, in their experimental think tank deep in the heart of Nat Geo headquarters, constantly seek innovative ways to capture amazing images and info about our world. The result: eye-popping research featured in National Geographic Television productions. Prepare for a fascinating afternoon of technical wizardry, including a miniature video-shooting helicopter, and a dangerously bright lighting contraption that captures incredible underwater images. Moderated by Mark Bauman, Senior VP of Content Development.

Co-presented with the Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.
