The Last Salute - Costa Concordia Salvage Documentary

The Last Salute is a time-lapse historical documentary comprised of high resolution photographs of the Costa Concordia salvage that will be taken every minute of every day.  The working title for the documentary is The Last Salute.  During daylight hours, every 5 seconds, a photo will be refreshed.

Henry Kissinger, Doc Sloan CfECE Special Projects Chairman Doc Sloan will be participating in the salvage as a consultant.  Doctor Sloan has made several trips to the Italian island Isola del Giglio, where the Costa Concordia is shipwrecked.  He is also providing input into The Last Salute project.

Cameras are in place at several spots on the island, which will offer the best views of the salvage operation. The photographic library will grow to 1440 images per day.

The photography project has been specifically designed to be suitable for a wide variety of diverse media applications.  For example, media owners and other interested third parties can embed or live stream video within their own websites.  Time Lapse is the name of the photographic/cinemaographic techniques in which a series of photographs with fixed intervals are used to document changes that take place slowly in normal time.  The result will be played as a movie. 

On January 13, 2013, the Costa Concordia was shipwrecked and subsequently capsized just off the coast of the Italian island Isola del Giglio.  The vessel is no in 30 feet of water off the coast of the beautiful island.
