- In July of 2010, I began a 16 month journey with my team into the world of filmmaking, to tell a story about Beach Clean up. We learned a lot over the last
year plus about documentary filmmaking, from writing treatments, researching the marine debris and plastic pollution issues that are effecting our oceans/planet,
to selecting the cast. Our goal was to produce a short documentary that would be authentic and true to the issue at hand, but led with optimism and positivity
versus gloom and doom. We scoured the earth discovering over 90 artists and innovators doing amazing things from building schools with plastic bottles to creating fine art with the plastic picked up off the beach. We refined our cast
to just six truly unique individuals representing different perspectives on the issue, and began our process.
