The co-producer/director of American Wine Story are now at work on a second documentary film. While we have more wine-related projects in development, we're taking a segue to cover one of the most vital topics of our time: the decline of coral reefs.
40% of the world's coral reefs have disappeared in the last 50 years due to human activity. We're currently in the midst of the largest-ever recorded coral bleaching event. If serious steps aren't taken soon to address this issue, we could lose on of the most spectacular habitats in the natural world, setting off dire consequences for the health of the ocean overall.
We've just launched a crowdfunding campaign in partnership with Oregon State University, and production is underway. This film will be a not-for-profit undertaking, and we feel can help make a difference in preserving reefs for our children and future generations through the medium of storytelling.
Please consider contributing to the campaign, and learning more about Saving Atlantis.
And thanks, too, for your interest in and support of American Wine Story. Connecting with our audiences and sharing the stories of featured winemakers has been a rewarding experience. You have been the fuel and inspiration that has kept us going as filmmakers. Thank you for exploring the world with us through the medium of documentaries.
