New DiveFilm Podcast on Dolphin Defender
Posted 18 August 2006 - 12:19 PM
I wanted to present this podcast for many reasons, one of which is that this is a powerful example of applying one's art, sharing images as a way to hopefully change how we interact with marine life. Hardy Jones is a well-known filmmaker who is using his imaging to try and prevent the capture and killing of dolphins. He has just started a video podcast that is available at iTunes. It is his intention to travel to Japan again this October to film to the planned dolphin drive and podcast his reports from there in the hope that getting the images out all over the world via the internet will bring pressure to end the dolphin drives for good.
Also very interested in what you all, Wetpixel viewers, think about having an occasional DiveFilm Video Podcast (say, one out of every three or four episodes?) that is more or less explicitly conservation-oriented. Is it too much, is it too little? Your feedback on this would be most appreciated!

I encourage all to watch this most important video.
To answer your questions Mary Lynn, I would like to see a greater diversity of films....not all interviews.
I have worked as an unpaid reviewer for the editing websites since 2002.

Personally I'd be more than happy to see 100% conservation minded podcasts, but I understand why there would be a need for perhaps some 'fun' ones thrown in too - 'all work & no play makes Jack a dull boy' kind of thing.
The latest dolphin podcast was a great download. I've seen horrific photos in the past of the massacre on the Sea Shepherd website (www.seashepherd.org) and it's a truly barbaric 'event'. There is a worldwide protest being organised on Sep 20th. Details can be found at http://www.earthisla...lphinDay06.html if anyone is interested in participating.
