Producer/Director Takes Us Behind the Scenes of the JASON Project
February 2, 2003
By Katherine DiGiulio
Meet George Cauttero, writer, producer, and director of the JASON Project, freshly back from his eighth JASON expedition.
George will be the featured presenter at the MCA-I/CT meeting on Tuesday, February 11, at Deloitte and Touche in Wilton. A long-time MCA-I member from New York, George will talk about the JASON Project and his latest adventure on this year’s expedition to California’s Channel Islands.
Founded by oceanographer and Titanic discoverer Robert Ballard, the JASON Project sponsors annual expeditions to the earth’s ecological “hotspots.” Ballard teams with scientists, teachers and students from various countries to study these sites. Satellite and Internet technologies allow students back in the classroom to follow and interact with the expedition.
JASON programs also air on National Geographic TV and CPTV. George will give us a behind-the-scenes view of a JASON production, and will describe the roles of the crew, many of whom are MCA-I members. Find out what it’s like to work on such an exciting, exotic, and educationally worthwhile venture! Join us for refreshments and networking at 6:30 p.m. A short meeting and the presentation will follow about 7 p.m.
