Seeing something made in Finland in this film was a pleasant surprise, and altogether this was a great film!

Very fun and engaging documentary. My only dislike was the music, which seemed to be all the same, unlike most of Max-Q's productions.

It was different scenario than our normal mission music videos.  We wanted this to be something that could be shown freely anywhere by anyone without the risk of copyright issues, so we were limited to using tracks to which we had rights.  Otherwise, we would have used our normal music.  Using copyrighted tracks before has cost us some opportunities with people in high places.  Hope this helps :)

How can we thank MAX-Q enough?it had reached the point that any Shuttle mission was not complete without the max-q video's,so i would just like to add a big thank you to ya'll,i will be watching it via the youtube channel(dodgy hard drive)
it is not wise of me to log on because i always just want to thank people for being so awesome! :D
whatever becomes of Max-Q ya'll have been so kind in sharing with us,you did not have to and for that i am so grateful! :)

We'll still be here!!!  I can tell you as a group we have big plans to cover Discovery when she goes up to NASM in April.  We've talked about some video ideas that we may put together here in time, as well as our photography which will branch out into other areas as well.

We'll be covering as many unmanned missions as possible over at KSC too, and whatever shuttle events may be available during the T&R time. 

I'll put in a plug here too -- we may have a 2012 calendar up on site for sale soon, with some of our shots from KSC.  If anyone would be interested in one, let us know -- we're just in the design stage and trying to gauge any interest.

So we'll be around for a while, no plans on deserting ship.  Unfortunately we just won't have live missions to cover for a long time.

We were both blessed and fortunate to be a part of these events over the last two years.  It was something we never even thought possible until the fall of 2009.  But when it did, it became clear that it was an experience that every supporter of spaceflight deserved, and that's why we decided to share this story and bring everyone here at NASASpaceflight.com with us.

It took each and every dedicated member of this unique community to make this happen for us, so we wanted to make sure it happened for everyone here.  It is we who owe our thanks to you :)

As for the future, I second what Larry said above.  We are not jumping ship at all.  We're exploring new opportunities that come our way, but never forgetting our origins.  We'll be involved with spaceflight as the NASASpaceflight.com media team when and where we can, but we're also branching out into new realms to see where life takes us.  But you have our word - we'll be here! :D

Chris, go ahead and branch this off if we need a new thread for the calendar stuff :) 

As for a European version, we will have to see if they have that option for who we are going with based on the demand n such,  if we cant get enough people to say yes to this we wont be able to fund one let alone two versions. We are also just now first venturing the idea publicly too, have been tossing it around since STS-133 part 2. 

Here is a bit of a compilation image we made using the shots we plan on putting into the calendar, enjoy

We do have a streaming option - not on YouTube...  Streaming (click that).

However, at this moment, we don't have anything lower than the 2.3gb version.  I can work on getting one uploaded for everyone, though!

EDIT:  It's a 480p resolution, widescreen video.  About half the bitrate of the 2.3gb version, so it'll be around 1.1gb or so.  Going to take a little bit to encode, and then upload.  I'll post the link as soon as it uploads!

Thanks very much for posting the 480p version. Just finished watching the film which I thought gave a very interesting perspective of Space Shuttle launch operations. Hope you guys don't have to wait too long for the next crewed launch from KSC!

Finally got a chance to view this in its entirety.

Great work MaxQ!  I find it even more personally appealing since my story of shuttle launches in person closely matches that of MaxQ (saw my first launch in person Dec 2006, STS-116 from the causeway, and ended up watching STS-130 from Banana River/Saturn V after working on my knowledge of how and what to do).  I have NSF and MaxQ to thank for all of that.

As well, it was a real honor and pleasure to meet some of you in person, and to maintain contact in some small way via the electrons on these wires.

Keep up the great work--we're counting on you now more than ever!

UPDATE: We will be assembling some of the raw footage we shot and loading it to L2 pretty soon.  It will be uncut and follow the same format of a basic home movie.  We'll be putting it together by event (RSS retract, SRB return, etc.) just to give you guys a sort of "special features" section.

We would have loved to use more of this footage in the film, but it would have made it rather monotonous and repetitive, not to mention several hours long.  This way, you can enjoy the movie while still having the raw footage to see more of what went on during our shuttle coverage.

And the first three files of the aforementioned raw footage are now loaded to L2.  They include -

1. Press Site/News Center views (countdown clock, distant shots of VAB, 39A, 39B, etc.)

2. Life Sciences Building Tour (experiment/research prep for shuttle/ISS)

3. RSS Retract Event (ride to the pad, pre-retract video, retraction itself, media flag event and other fun shots)

I'll be adding more either tomorrow or Saturday.  I have some launch day goodies along with an hour of SRB return/lock video.
