Tombaugh and the Telescope
Here's a trailer for a short film I wrote and directed in 2007. It's based on the true story of astronomer Clyde Tombaugh, discoverer of Pluto. Weather or not you think Pluto is still a planet, the point is it was an amazing discovery, This kid was 24 with no college experience and had only built homemade telescopes on a Kansas farm before finding "Planet X" in 1930. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in screening this film.
