Nova/BBC “Inside the Megastorm”
“Inside the Megastorm”
I spent the last 10 days in Breezy Point, Staten Island and Red Hook. I witnessed the devastation that Hurricane Sandy left behind firsthand. The overwhelming sense of community in these locations was a beautiful thing to witness. Inside the Megastorm aired on BBC and Nova just 5 days after the wrap of shooting. It was shot by Mark Molesworth on the Panasonic HDX-900. Tapes were flown back and forth to the UK each night.
Was Hurricane Sandy a freak combination of weather systems? Or are hurricanes increasing in intensity due to a warming climate? How did this perfect storm make search and rescue so dangerous? Inside the Megastormtakes viewers moment by moment through Hurricane Sandy, its impacts, and the future of storm protection. Through first person accounts from those who survived, and from experts and scientists, “Inside the Megastorm” gives scientific context to a new breed of storms.
