Happy Saturday, my loves! Kickstarter officially delivered our funds (HUGE thanks to all our backers!), and I have hit the ground running. I'm SO excited to share with you that we have new members to welcome to the WTOWW Family... Proxima Parada! These guys are an incredibly talented and immensely fun-loving local band, and you will be hearing their music in the film in a big way. Check out some of their rad tunes!
I recently spent a week filming in Los Angeles, and had the opportunity to interview Bruce Reznik, Executive Director of the Los Angeles Water Keepers; Ron Finley, the one-and-only "Gangster Gardener"; George McGraw, Founder of DigDeep; Lonnie & Mary, passionate Bee Farmers in Corona; and Dr. Richard Oppenlander, Author of "Comfortably Unaware". I also toured the Edward C. Little Water Recycling Facility at West Basin Municipal Water District, and talked with the folks there about the importance of recycled water in our current and future water landscape.
I had the opportunity this week to interview Seth M. Siegel, author of "Let There Be Water". He gave a presentation at Cal Poly about what Israel has done to create a secure water future, and generously sent all guests home with a copy of his book. It's a must-read, in my opinion.
I have been invited to present images from my project at Open Show in San Francisco on April 15th as part of the San Francisco Green Film Festival, and I am thrilled for this opportunity. If you live in the Bay Area, please come - I would LOVE to see you!
For you SLO-County folks, my project is currently featured in Information Press, Paso Robles Magazine and SLO Life Magazine. And I will be a featured artist at the Earth Day Fair & Music Festival on April 24th at El Chorro Park. Mark your calendars and come out to play!
Thank you, again, from the bottom of my heart, for joining me on this journey, and for making all of this possible. You are the best!
