Flight Artists on Labyrint

This evening, the popular science programme Labyrint will be featuring the Flight Artists (Vliegkunstenaars). Over the past year, volunteers have filmed 2400 clips for these winners of the Annual Academic Prize 2010 using high-speed cameras.

A jury that includes Discovery Channel film-maker Steve Romano has looked at the 2400 submissions and selected the eight best clips. They can be admired on www.youtube.com/vliegwinnaars.

Labyrint will be broadcasting some of them and is promising to show 'an exceptional portrait of life on the wing and its devotees in the Netherlands'. The programme is on Nederland 2 at 20.50.

You can get a taster on the Labyrint website. And you can find far more clips at Vliegkunstenaars.nl.
