Plastic Beach / Kickstarter Call to Action

Hello everyone and thank you so much for your support.

We wanted to share with you this disturbing video captured by our team on Midway. A beach “cleanup” quickly reveals both the real magnitude of the plastic pollution problem and the shocking fact that we humans are also eating plastic junk, not only figuratively, but quite literally as well.

**CALL TO ACTION** Over 1,200 donors have pledged close to $80,000 to help fund our film. Thank you so much!!

With only 5 days to go (!!) it is critical to enlist more donors as soon as possible! Please visit our Kikstarter and share the link with your networks(on facebook, by email, etc)

We really need a final push to reach our goal! Your help is essential to us. Thank you so much!!

We are also extremely grateful by the traffic that the trailer is getting. A week ago today, was one of the highest views we’ve had in a single day. 108,000 people watched it on that Monday.  And in total, 3.8 million people have tuned in. It’s wonderful to see how this story is resonating with people from all over the world.

Our team is in the process of getting ready for the next Midway expedition. We will be on the island from June 28th to July 5th.  This is the time of the year when the Albatrosses fledge the island…  and as we know and experienced in the past, many of them don’t make it.

We will once again be bringing a camera that has the ability to capture stunning ultra slow motion, as can be seen in some of the new footage in our trailer.

Please stay tuned and keep sharing the trailer and the Kickstarter link so that we can get this film made!!   Thank you for joining us on this journey.

 

With love and gratitude,

The Midway film team.

MIDWAY – April 2012 – Miguel update

Dear friends,

Our team just returned from another exhausting and richly rewarding trip to Midway. This time we brought with us the new RED Epic camera, and our albatross friends brought us stunning visual gifts as we recorded their takeoff runs, water-skimming glides, soarings, and feedings, all in gorgeous ultra slow motion.

One of our first stops on the island was to check up on our little friend Miguel who we witnessed hatch back in February. When we left the island last time, Miguel was looking weak and was having trouble standing up to receive his feedings, so our hopes for the little guy were not high.

Here is an update on what we found when we arrived at his nest:

MIDWAY V – Junk food V

Chris Jordan and the team work to remove a length of fishing line from an adult Albatross and her chick on Midway Island. Later it was discovered that it looked more like dental floss.

MIDWAY V – Meet our little friend Miguel

Check out the adorable little chick who hatched right outside the door of our house today.  Things looked tenuous for a bit, but he rallied and late this afternoon received his first feeding from his patient papa.
