Humpback Whales often become entangled in marine debris and fishing gear. While many reports of courageous rescuers that disentangle whales often makes the evening news, Northern Wake documents the work being done to prevent the problem in the first place.
The full documentary of Northern Wake will begin production Spring of 2013. Lou Douros filmed this sneak preview in August with director of photography, John Northrup. The guerilla funding for the film was provided by the generous backers:
- The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation
- NOAA, National Marine Fisheries Service (Office of Protected Resources, Alaska)
- Future Oceans, Australia
- The Innovation Centre at the University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia
Please consider supporting the production of Northern Wake.
