Support our latest documentary film, Beyond the Salish Sea

Hey there, fellow ocean advocates and environmental enthusiasts,

I hope this message finds you well amidst the waves of life and the tides of change. Today, I come to you with a humble plea and a bold vision: the production of a documentary film titled “Beyond the Salish Sea.”

Let’s talk about the Salish Sea. Picture it: a majestic, biodiverse ecosystem nestled between the Pacific Northwest of the United States and the southwestern coast of Canada. Its waters are teeming with life, and its shores echo with the songs of indigenous cultures. Yet, the Salish Sea faces challenges that threaten its very existence.

This is not our first rodeo. In 2021, we premiered our first feature documentary, Hopped Up: How Yakima Valley changed craft beer forever. It’s currently available on several streaming services and through Amazon. This film highlighted the struggles and sustainability of 5 generations of hop growers in Eastern Washington state.

Through “Beyond the Salish Sea,” we aim to shed light on the beauty, complexity, and fragility of this marine wonderland and other waterways and oceans. We seek to amplify the voices of those who call it home and raise awareness about the urgent need for conservation and protection.

Here’s the catch

But here’s the catch: producing a documentary of this magnitude requires resources. From equipment and production costs to travel expenses and post-production work, the journey to bring “Beyond the Salish Sea” to life is no small feat. That’s where you come in.

We’re reaching out to you, our community of ocean advocates, environmental stewards, and passionate souls, requesting fiscal sponsorship. A fiscal sponsorship (DONATE HERE) is a way for you to contribute to our film through a certified 501.c3 non-profit organization. We have partnered with Allied Arts Foundation in Seattle to support us in this project.

By partnering with us, you become more than just a donor; you become a crucial part of our mission to protect and preserve the Salish Sea for generations.

Now, we understand that times can be tough for some of us. The world is grappling with unprecedented challenges, from the ongoing wars and civil unrest to the looming specter of climate change. It’s a lot to ask, we know. But what’s the alternative?

What’s the alternative?

What’s the alternative to standing up for our planet, defending the sanctity of our oceans, to safeguarding the natural wonders that define our existence? What’s the alternative to inspiring change, fostering empathy, and igniting a collective sense of responsibility towards the world we inhabit?

The truth is, there is no alternative. There’s only the choice to act, to rise above the tide of indifference, and to make a difference, however small it may seem. Together, we can turn the tide, rewrite the narrative, and create a future where the Salish Sea—and other waterways—can thrive.

So, I invite you to join us on this journey. Together, let’s go beyond the surface, beyond the horizon, and beyond the Salish Sea. Let’s dive deep into the heart of conservation, resilience, and hope.

Whether through donations, spreading the word, or simply believing in our cause, your support means the world to us. Together, let’s make waves and leave a legacy that transcends time and tide.
