For Immediate Release


OUR INVISIBLE SHORELINE: A VIDEO TOUR

As we walk along the shoreline, we are surrounded by things we can't see.  Creatures that are hidden below the surface of the water, beneath rocks, or are too small to see; processes too slow for us to see, or just plain invisible!  But each is a key part of our nearshore environment.

Join filmmaker John F. Williams for a video tour of the secret watery world lapping, crashing, and swirling on our local beaches. See unusual underwater video clips, provocative photographs, and engage in conversation about some of the key marine shoreline processes that are not a part of our daily experience. 

Whether you live down on the beach or up in the watershed, you are a stakeholder in the health and beauty of our marine ecosystem, and you are a player in it’s future.

BIO
John Williams spent almost 20 years helping to map the ocean floor all over the world, from the deepest of the deep, the Mariana Trench, to the flanks of Surtsey, Iceland, some of the newest real-estate on the planet.  At the beginning of this century, he embarked on a new adventure: turning his love for SCUBA diving into a new career making educational underwater movies.    Recognizing some of the serious issues facing our oceans, yet basically optimistic that they can be addressed through public awareness and involvement, John founded a media production company called Still Hope Productions, Inc.  

His video has been seen on broadcast, satellite, and cable TV, and at science conferences.  John's movie about the four seasons underwater in Puget Sound, "Return of the Plankton," is in many schools and libraries around the U.S., and it toured the country with the Kids First! film festival in 2007.  For the last three years, John has been producing the Pacific Northwest's only underwater TV series, SEA-Inside: Pacific Northwest.  It is a non-profit project that airs on more than 50 community TV stations, reaching over 4 million homes.

John is a member of the 911 Media Arts Center, Bainbridge Island Broadcasting, Northwest Film Forum, the Alliance for Community Media, and he served on the steering committee for the Puget Sound Partnership's ECO Network.
