Jil Love and Ed Ellsworth

Flash back to 1990: I remember the Digital Be-In event with Michael Gosney in San Francisco, I was there showing some dolphin and whale animations on an early Macintosh. Then, some Swiss Bankers asked me to work on their Stirling Engine Solar Project in Zurich.

Flash forward to 2017: For the 50th Anniversary of the Human Be-In, I worked with Michael Gosney of Digital Be-In, and Bill McCarthy of The Unity Foundation to broadcast the historic show to a larger audience. I supplied the equipment and expertise to broadcast the live video program to YouTube.com, peacechannel.com and Facebook.

For this epic show, Jessie Bloch directed a three camera HD video shoot. I took their SDI video output and the sound board audio to be digitzed with a BlackMagic UltraStudio Mini Recorder, attached by Thunderbolt cable to my MacBook Pro Retina. I used the Wirecast app to upload the video to YouTube Live Streaming Channel, and display the broadcast on peacechannel.com. The Human Be-In full program is available for viewing here…

Please enjoy For the Love of Dolphins, featuring Dr. John C. Lilly and Ed Ellsworth. I worked as the research consultant for this project with Patricia Sims, the producer of the show. This program originally aired on the Discovery Channel. In the film, I was interviewed regarding my work as a dolphin researcher with Dr. John C. Lilly and the Human/Dolphin Foundation. I took our team to the various locations and researchers included in the program. – Ed Ellsworth
