Intrepid, the warship docked on the Hudson River. A subsequent cocktail reception lasted long into the night. On this snowy morning in March, there is an early talk at the United Nations... Read More
Contribute to the film ODYSSEA 3D: Save Oceans with Jean-Michel Cousteau
Did you know that every other breath you take is a gift from the sea? Yes, that’s right. Phytoplankton in the ocean, through photosynthesis, produce more than half the oxygen on Earth! That is one of the reasons we all depend on the health of the ocean for our survival.
We are accustomed to seeing the large animals such as whales, dolphins and sharks, and many of us have focused on protecting them. However, they represent only the top of the food chain while everything in the ocean and on our planet depends on the bottom of the food chain.
ODYSSEA 3D focuses on this crucial part of the food chain: From plankton to tiny animals that feed on plankton and which are in turn source of food for species in the entire food chain. Protecting the ocean means not just protecting the large animals but also those that are small and fragile.
We need you to become part of our team not only by financially contributing to our campaign but also by spreading the word to your friends, relatives, co-workers, and colleagues. Together we can complete the movie and also start to market it around the world. The more of us get involved, the easier it will be to find distributors in countries all over the world. And all together we will take part in raising awareness for millions of people to protect the ocean.
We have a very limited timeframe as we want to be ready by May 2016, not only to market the film to worldwide distributors at the Cannes Film Festival, but also to take advantage of an amazing marketing opportunity. Indeed, May 2016 is the 60th anniversary of the Golden Palm Award Jacques Cousteau won in 1956 for THE SILENT WORLD, and Jean-Michel Cousteau would be then able to present ODYSSEA 3D in Cannes as a tribute to his father.
