New Mojave Spaceport Promotional Video is a Big Hit With the Kids

When Karina Drees screened the Mojave Air and Space Port’s new promotional video at the recent SpaceVision 2012 conference in Buffalo, a number of viewers noted something unusual: the almost total lack of animation.

The people in Mojave are building real hardware. And flying vehicles.! Not in like five years’ time.

That was a good thing to hear from the college students who attended the conference, which was sponsored by the Students for the Exploration and Development of Space. Drees, who is the Mojave spaceport’s director of business development, had gone to the conference to promote the spaceport and to recruit future interns.  And she found them very excited to learn about all the interesting things going on in Mojave.

The new video, which was produced by Robin Snelson, also has received kudos from the Mojave airport staff and its board of directors. General Manager Stu Witt noted that the video showed the faces of the young generation of aerospace workers working in Mojave.
