“Deep Look” is a PBS and KQED YouTube wildlife and nature series that explores big scientific mysteries by going incredibly small. They’ve captured the inside of a Mexican jumping bean in motion, a bee lining her nest with leaves, a flower releasing pollen, and much more. But we aren’t going to focus on any flowers or butterflies in October! For this Halloween-edition of “Deep Look”, we’ll screen stomach-turning episodes about scorpions, turret spiders, bats, and ticks to learn what makes them…tick. The producers who created the videos will interview the scientists behind the research, and we’ll make sure we get to your questions too.
To learn how “Deep Look” films those microscopic scorpion pincers, our live cameras will zoom in on Josh Cassidy, “Deep Look’s” cinematographer, as he films live with “Deep Look’s” ultra-HD (4K) lens. He’ll give us a behind-the-scenes look at how he works to tell stories on a microscopic lens with such charming protagonists.
In case those visuals aren’t enough, you’ll get the chance to see spooky creatures up close. After the screening, the audience can encounter live bats, ticks, and spiders. Maybe even a leech. But don’t worry – they’ll be in escape-proof protection. We promise.
