Filmmaker Origin:



Decision is the story of wild Alaska shorelines, a remote lighthouse and the ongoing problem of marine debris. The scenery is magnificent and the kayaking is superb, while the message about our addiction to plastic and its effects on the environment come through in every shot. This short film can transport you to pristine southeast Alaska waters, bringing you along on a paddling journey with whales, sea lions and otter, and still show you the realities of wilderness beaches choked with plastic debris and the volunteers working to clean them up.

Filmmaker Bio:

I currently live in Kittery Point, but grew up in Brunswick. I’m 28 y/o and work as a filmmaker for a company called Moment based out of Seattle. This was my first project that I’ve ever submitted to a festival and I’m stoked! Since starting DECISION, I’ve grown a lot and learned so much more about filmmaking. I’m really excited for the next one.
