WSL tapped me to Produce and Edit five films for the We Are One Ocean campaign, an initiative working towards protecting 30% of our world’s ocean by 2030. Because of Covid I wasn’t able to travel to direct these films in person, so I worked remotely, guiding local crews on the creative intentions of the project and set the tone for the series along with WSL’s in-house creative director Kim Hogan and EP Tim Greenberg.
I’m extremely proud of the films we were able to creative despite the restrictions we were all placed under during Covid. To learn more and sign the petition please go to weareoneocean.org.
“As surfers and ocean lovers, the global ocean is more than just our favorite place to play. It is our arena, our office, and our inspiration. The global ocean, its waves and beaches, reefs and high seas, is truly our greatest resource and connector.
We’re calling on world leaders to adopt a target at the 2021 United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity to protect and conserve at least 30 percent of the global ocean, including international waters, by 2030. We urge world leaders to be driven by science, and led by an inclusive process that embraces all stakeholder communities and considers the ocean’s value to the peoples of every nation.“
