Film Update: Breaking News!
MATCHING FUNDS CAMPAIGN

View fullscreen

Thanks to all who contributed to the Matching Funds Campaign. We reached the final funding goal of $20,000, the total that was needed to cover the remaining production costs for the film.


A special thanks to the non-profit Marine Environmental Research Corporation (MERC) for so generously offering to match up to $10,000 for the campaign. This was the spark that made it all happen!

Watch Dave Miller’s outstanding promo video, and see how great this film is going to be and why it is so important to promote.
