Constant, Stationary, Thunderless Lightning!

This has been a crazy week, and we actually uploaded two new videos this week.  The first was a planned video about Mike Birbiglia for our Moment of Inspiration series, and I thought that was going to be the only upload Tuesday night, and then I went outside to walk my dog, and saw what is the strangest natural phenomena I’ve ever witnessed (and I also saw a tornado this week), lightning that was exactly what the subject line described, ‘constant, stationary, thunderless lightning!’  I was outside with the dog for like 5 minutes watching, before going back into the house, grabbing my camera and capturing our second video upload of the night.


(I didn’t edit the footage at all, other than stopping the recording about 45 minutes before the lightning stopped.)

I had hoped that our Moment of Inspiration video would be this week’s highlight, but I kind of think that this non-stop lightning probably is.

Now, the reason I had initially recorded it, was that I was hoping that perhaps someone could explain to me, what might cause this kind of occurrence?  My wife said she thought it might be a ‘heat lightning.’  Anyone who has an answer will get a shoutout in our next video.


Our IndieGoGo campaign has been going for over a week, and we’ve funded about 4% of our total goal. Please check it out, and watch the trailer.  If you think that what we’re doing is cool, please consider donating or sharing the campaign with anyone you know who might be interested.

Also we were contacted by a composer who wants to score this film, and so I want to welcome to the team Dane Gerous Schmidt who’ll be scoring for us.

Lastly, we’ll be watching recording our newest episode of Sarah and Mike’s Best Picture Podcast, covering the 1949 film, All the King’s Men, in the next couple of days, so stay tuned.  If you want to contact us with any of the trivia about that film, please email me.
