It’s 5 AM and we’re on the way to a TV interview. Sharkwater hits theaters today on more screens in Florida than any documentary before it. It’s really exciting as the press and public response has been amazing. We need all the help we can get though, so please spread the word. Tell your friends to go see Sharkwater please! We’re battling films with 40 million dollar marketing budgets, and are definitely the underdog. Word of mouth, and people that are moved by the plight of sharks and humans on earth is what’s going to make this film fly. Awareness is simply the most important issue facing the oceans today. If we had even a fraction of North America aware of the issues facing the oceans, everything could change in an instant.
Sharkwater above being a film, is a way to deliver a message to the public - to educate, awaken, and enroll people so we have the support to turn around the fate of sharks, just as we’ve turned around the situation for the whales.
I’m going to be at the Cobb Dolphin theater for the Friday night showing at 7 PM for a question and answer. I’ll also be at the Muvico Paradise Saturday night, so please come out and join the movement!

Blood thirsty Man Eater is the common perception for what a shark is - through your documentary, how did you persuade the audience, in why they should change their misconception about sharks. A fraction of the planet has the opportunity to go underwater and experience the ocean, so a public that largely fears sharks is wholly logical considering the media’s portrayal of them.

While the movie has been roundly praised, some critics claim your presence was a bit overbearing and took the focus off the sharks?Most of that criticism was from the old festival cut of the film. Great things are happening, but the biggest issue facing the oceans today is awareness, and we need more people talking about the issue and everything will change.
