How are humans affecting the Orca whales? How do our choices have an affect on the whales? This documentary will give Canadians insight into the lives of the Orca whales that live in the northern Vancouver Island waters. Their habitat is changing fast and their population is also at risk. Principal photography will be shot this summer July/Aug 2012 on the Johnstone Strait. I will be working in cooperation with Orcalab, a whale research station for 30+years in Canada that uses non-invasive research techniques to study the whales in their natural habitat.
This will be my first feature film. I am excited about the opportunity to work with OrcaLab to tell their story and inspire others to take action and make this world a better place. As a 2011 graduate of TV and Film, I am inspired to make a film that will have an impact and make a difference in our world.
As a filmmaker my goal is to raise awareness of the plight of orca whales, but more importantly to inspire viewers to take action to help protect our natural world. Ultimately, it is not just the orca whale that is at risk, but our own health and well being depend on conserving this treasured species and our planet.
