I am working on a documentary about overnight work in the US – profiling four people across the country in different fields. I'm very interested in finding a scientist/researcher, and I am hoping you can help me.
Could you recommend anyone whose fieldwork is primarily/frequently/regularly conducted overnight? Or can you steer me towards an institution that is likely conducting regular nighttime fieldwork (or labwork)? I'd like to find out more about what they do and of course see if they'd be willing to participate and answer any questions.
Geographically: I'm primarily interested in the Central Time Zone.
Sound + Visual: The documentary will use public radio-style soundscapes and interviews, accompanied by still photographs. So an acoustically-active subject or space would be a bonus (as would an interesting visual space).
I'm "on deadline" to identify potential subjects, so I'd deeply appreciate any ideas, recommendations, or contacts you're able to share.
