California gold

“A beautiful and inspirational film, can't wait for the soundtrack!” – Common Ground

Saltwater Collective, in association with Surfers for Cetaceans, is proud to announce the world premier of “The Transparentsea Voyage” screened to a sold out audience in the heart of the ocean conservation territory, Byron Bay Australia, March 23rd 2014. This benefit screening in support of Surfers for Cetaceans was kicked off by a live musical performance by The Band of Frequencies and special guest, professional surfer, Dave Rastovich. Those in attendance also got a chance to participate in a Q and A with the cast and crew about the social and environmental issues raised in the film.

The documentary highlights the efforts of a group of gifted athletes, musicians, celebrities and artists on a campaign aimed at focusing attention on coastal environmental issues. Experience the voyage from start to finish as the crew traced the southern migration of the California Grey & Blue Whale from Santa Barbara to San Diego in five sailing kayaks. The journey unfolds through the creation of song, as this “behind the music” look at focused activism reveals how an eclectic group of individuals makes a heartfelt connection to the California coastline through creativity and education.

"The passion and creative prowess I witnessed from the characters in this film were quite inspiring says Producer/Director, Justin Krumb. Telling their story has become my own passion as I feel a responsibility to show the world how special and talented these individuals are. These benefit screenings and festival premiers are a great way to do that."

With the film’s world premier leg of the voyage complete, the crew now travels the length of the pacific for the North American Premier at AmDocs, The American Documentary Film Festival, Saturday March 29th at 4:30pm at Camelot Theatres (2300 E. Baristo Road, Palm Springs, CA 92262)
