About this project

About Wild Reverence

Wild Reverence is a documentary film chronicling the plight of the iconic wild steelhead  along the west coast of Amercia. 

In Nov. of 2012 I made a pilgrimage back to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state to the rivers I once fished as a boy.  This was a once in a lifetime fishing trip and I soon discovered wild steelhead and salmon were disappearing from the rivers and appearing as federally listed under the Endangered Species Act.  How could the icons of the Northwest slip toward the abyss of extinction?

This discovery left me asking many questions so I decided to take off the rest of the year, cash out my life savings and embark on an adventure up and down the west coast to document and learn about the current plight of wild steelhead and why this fish is so revered. 

We are constantly mis-informed on information about the reality and the status of our fish until its too late. The effects of shifting baselines is more evident then ever.  I wanted to find the truth, look at history and  hard scientific fact as well as  talk with people who have dedicated their lives to studying and advocating for wild steelhead and salmon.

My journey took me from Malibu, CA back north to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state.  I snorkeled some rivers and creeks and fished in others.  Everywhere I traveled I met kindred spirits  that the steelhead has influenced. 

Hopefully through my journey you can see the scope of our rivers across the west coast, hear the stories and see with your own eyes where things are working, where they are broken, how WE can turn the decline around, fill our rivers back up with wild fish and save some of the magic for future generations. 

I hope to give the wild steelhead the spotlight it deserves and through "Wild Reverence" begin a movement to enact some real change  before its too late.

Thanks for you support!!

Why do I need funding?

The funding I am seeking will go into the final stages of post production.

I have invested thousands of hours into this project as well as my life savings.  Now as I am entering the final push, I plan to bring in some talented folks to help make the film the best that it can be.

I need help to hire:

A colorist

Animator 

Audio engineer 

Musicians for my score/music producer 

What if I exceed my goal?

Realistically post production will cost  more than my kickstarter goal so any additional funds will go to finishing post production as well as....

Distribution

Film Festivals

PR

Outreach

Editing excess film footage to release free of charge on the internet for educational purposes.  

What you get as a backer:

Not only do you get some great rewards you get to be a part of an action to help save the species we all love so much.  I am hoping this will start a movement, a dialogue, and a rally cry to protect and recover wild steelhead and salmon.

Risks and challenges

The Film will get done and is getting done. My risks and challenges will be distribution to the masses and getting accepted by the film festivals.
My biggest challenge is making a movie that can be interesting to a wide audience.

I feel really good about where I am at and how the project looks so far. It's only going to get better.
