Tribeca Film Festival Work in Progress Screening

Big news, Backers!

We've officially changed the name of our film to "6", as in the sixth mass extinction of species currently happening on Earth today. 

And even more, we're having a work-in-progress screening of 6 at the Tribeca Film Festival! The festival runs April 16-27 in New York City.

Here's the how Tribeca describes the film: From the Academy Award®- winning filmmaking team that revealed oceanic atrocities in The Cove comes a bigger and bolder mission. Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment, director Louie Psihoyos assembles a team of activists intent on showing the world never-before-seen images that will change the way we understand issues of endangered species and mass extinction. Whether infiltrating notorious black markets with guerilla-style tactics, or working with artists to create beautiful imagery with unexpected animal subjects, 6 will literally change the way you see the world.

We love this shot from the film, of a freediver and a blue whale—the largest animal ever to have lived on the planet. We are still editing and shooting the final pieces and we can't to share the finished film with you! 

6 will premiere in late summer/early fall and we will be sure to give you more updates as they come!

Good news! Rewards are shipping! 

We're a lot better at making movies than shipping packages, so let's just say we learned a few things from the experience. We're happy to say that your thank you gifts are on their merry way. A big thanks to Kay, who volunteered several days to help pull it all together, and to our OPS interns and staff that pitched in too!

The electronic image pack and Facebook shout outs are coming later this week, so hang tight for those...
