WOW!! WHAT A START TO THE WEEK!!

March 3, 2015

 

 

It's been an amazing week so far and all of your support has been overwhelming! My film "Watchmen of our waters" has been shortlisted by WaterAid/Worldviews film competition #sh2orts, and has already recieved over 600 views!!! 

 

I spent yesterday running between two boats in Newlyn harbour, meeting more fishermen, hearing their incredible stories and getting covered in ice by a wayward ice tube while three stories down in the belly of a trawler. When I got home to see the response to the film so far, I felt hugely grateful to this incredible group of fishermen who have given me such close access to their work and their lives (Though I think the main reason they allow me on board is my hair- I think half of them genuinely believe I'm a mermaid!!) and a sense of pride that I have somehow managed to garner interest in their story in under a minute. 

 

The story is so much bigger than 1 minute, and I hope to do them justice in a larger project, but this competition is an opportunity to tell their story to a global audience. Please keep watching, sharing, liking and posting to keep up the views and spread this story. THANK YOU!! 

 

THE ICE TUBE THAT GOT AWAY!!
