In early September we hit the road, or better yet we took to the skies, for a shoot in France for the soon to be released documentary on nuclear power for the Heritage Foundation. We visited several nuclear power facilities documenting the process and care put into developing nuclear power for the country of France. Once back in the States, we traveled to Rhea County, Tennessee visiting the Watts Bar Nuclear Generating Station. As you can see from the photos we were invited into the heart of the operation.
