A brand new Australian environmental documentary, A Drop In The Ocean, will begin filming in the Harbour Room @ RMYS St Kilda on Wednesday 29 July from 5.00pm with a special "Q&A style" live event, featuring a panel of experts, opinion leaders, local celebrities and community members.
This is the first of several "panel show" events to be held in communities around Australia, the filming will not only include lively debate but directly engage the audience in finding practical solutions to the pressing problems confronting the world’s oceans. Selected via an online ballot, the studio audience will be invited to become part of the solution by taking direct action in their personal lives.
A Drop In The Ocean is more than a groundbreaking documentary feature about the adverse impacts of human activity on the world’s oceans; it’s a positive film about the practical steps we can all take to mitigate these.
Shot entirely within Australia – with an audience-friendly panel show format – A Drop In The Ocean focuses on three big challenges to ocean health: plastics, pesticides and over-consumption. As a response to this trio of hazards, the film posits three achievable fixes: hemp, organic agriculture and smart shopping.
Rather than taking an apocalyptic, doom-and-gloom approach, A Drop In The Ocean concentrates on how we can all contribute by slightly altering our lifestyle and spending habits.
“We can affect incredibly powerful change through what we individually do and buy,” says Paul Ransom. “This project is about giving those who are already working hard in the green space an elevated platform and empowering local communities to join in and become an active part of the groundswell. In short, this is a film about hope; because the future really is in good hands: ours.”
A Drop In The Ocean is produced by Eddie Postma and Horizon Films.
