Mark Archer, a videographer at Massachusetts-based Del Padre Digital, is packing a RED ONE 4K digital cinema camera on a three-week trip to Tanzania as part of the National Science Foundation’s STEPS (Science Theater Education Programming System) project.

Professors and students from the University of Colorado at Denver, plus scientists, an on-camera host and experts from the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo., will participate in the trip, starting June 26, visiting Masai villages and scaling Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa.

STEPS is an interactive, video-based application being developed in part by Del Padre Digital that will allow museums and science centers to create educational programs using theater, live-action video, custom-designed animation, and more. The first shows produced by STEPS, “Space for Life,” center on astrobiology and will be available to the public next year.

“The upcoming trip to Tanzania will be the basis for several future STEPS shows, on subjects ranging from evolution to climate change.” Archer said. “In addition, we’ll be filming a documentary called ‘Inspire Me Africa,’ a joint SSI / Acme Industrial Imagination production capturing the excitement of exploration and learning that science educators can use to enliven their classrooms.”

The RED ONE 4K camera, acquired by Del Padre last fall, is a high-resolution digital camera that uses 35mm lenses and gives the look of actual film with several times the total resolution of HDTV-quality video.
