Welcome to our Kickstarter Campaign. My current project is one close to my heart as I feel compelled to share the hobby I love with the world. With that in mind I hope to create a film called The Aquarium Life.
Home Aquariums are living art. Not only are they beautify and relaxing but they are also educational.
In this film I hope to share the fact that we as aquarium hobbyist love and respect the oceans and nature as a whole.
The mission of this film is to not only share how our passion for aquariums affect our lives but how the Aquarium Hobby affects the world.
This film will help discover amazing stories like this 3rd Grade classes that uses a Reef aquarium to learn about biology and chemistry.
According to Reefs.co.uk in 2003 it was estimated that 7.5 million pieces of hard coral are being traded and 18 million pieces of soft coral were being traded. It is likely that these figures have increased further in the last few years. With this many corals in our Aquariums this would make reef hobbyists the largest coral conservation specialists in the world!
This documentary will also show that this hobby is not only important to us! Small villages that inhabit countries along the golden triangle (such as the Philippines and Indonesia) rely heavily on the aquarium industry for their livelihood.
Let's share with the world the innovations that have come from our great hobby. Like Aquaponics.
In terms of research the aquarium hobby has always been innovators. The knowledge gained from reef keeping has and is being used to help restore our reefs.
Given the situation at hand, we are attempting to make and distribute a film revealing how our hobby is making a positive impact on the world, and we need your help to finance this message. Kickstarter is all or nothing. Either we reach our goal of $20,000 or all the funds will be returned and we will receive nothing. We appreciate your contribution and spreading the word about this project.
