The show is made possible by the members of the OCA TV SIG. THANKS TO ALL!!!

Special thanks to Greg Pyros of Pyros Pictures for the use of his studio in Costa Mesa where the SIG meets to shoot the narration segments for the show.

A new feature in Episodes 12 and 13 is the use of very special animations of the planets in the narration background.  These full-motion animations were captured from a very new program (still in development) by Software Bisque. Thanks go to Tom Bisque for sending me an early beta version of their software. It is awesome.

Thanks to everyone at The Planetary Society for their help in producing the special feature in Episode 12. The staff went out of their way to give me a guided tour of their headquarters in Pasadena. Thanks especially to Bruce Betts, Mat Kaplan and Lu Coffing.


If you have any comments, suggestions, questions about the show please do get in contact with me.

Liam Kennedy
Producer of "Look Up Tonight"
