Thursday – Neah Bay- Voices of the Strait showing

In addition to running this web site, I also produce videos.  We have just finished “Voices of the Strait”, a short video documentary interviewing people who have lived out here on the Peninsula over the last 50 years. They discuss the way they grew up, the changes they’ve seen in our natural resources along the Strait of Juan de Fuca, what we have lost, and how we might restore them.

We will also be showing a short documentary video interviewing some of the SCUBA community on the changes they have seen in our natural resources over  the last twenty years. The SCUBA video was done by local Port Angeles graduate Cameron Little.

Voices of the Strait is a production of Mountainstone Productions of Port Townsend, with sponsorship by the Feiro Marine Life Center in Port Angeles. Both of these documentaries were supported by  the Puget Sound Partnerships,  a network of educators and communicators.

Please come out to see these short videos, at one of the community events listed below, and participate in the questions and answers with a panel of video participants, the video production team, and the local groups that helped sponsor the video.

Attached is a poster that will be used to advertise for these community events.This version will not print well at 8×10 as it was reduced in size for email use only.  If you wish a larger size version to post at appropriate locations within your community, email me. If you want to print it for local PR and then put your local information in, feel free to do so.

If you wish to arrange for a showing at your location, other than these dates, let me know. We expect to be releasing this to the Internet (i.e. Youtube and/or Vimeo) in early September. We have no plans to sell videos but if there is a need for an actual video, please contact me and we can discuss it.

“This documentary, though it lasts a mere 16 minutes, has the goods to drive a new conversation about restoring the body of water that sustains the North Olympic Peninsula” – Diane Urbani de la Paz – Peninsula Daily News

Please forward this email to your email distribution lists, as appropriate. Thank you!

  1. Yes, we will be posting this to the Internet in September, after the showings on the Peninsula. We’ll make an announcement with the link to it at that time.

  2. Do you have any plans to post this on Youtube or elsewhere for online viewing? This documentary interests me greatly but I can’t make it to PA for a showing.
