The finest compliment I ever received on my art ... It was during an art show in South Beach, Miami. A three to four-year-old little girl in a stroller said to her mom: "Mommy, hold me up to the hole in the wall, so I can see the fish in the ocean better. "
We came across this film yesterday on Osprey Steelhead News but no embed code or links to its source were provided. Of course we managed to track it down at Oregon State University and you can grab the embed code HERE if you wish to share.
Pass Creek provides a penetrating account of a once-rich steelhead trout stream threatened by careless logging practices. Focusing on Oregon's North Umpqua River Basin, the film portrays the impact of clearcut logging on the small tributary streams where most of the river's steelhead are spawned and reared. The subtle interdependence of land and water and the disruption of the aquatic environment caused by stream-clogging debris and warming water are dramatically presented. Hal Riney and Dick Snider, advertising executives and fishermen, produced the film and donated it to Oregon State University. It was widely distributed and viewed in Oregon and throughout the United States through the 1970s and was influential in changing logging practices in the Northwest.
The film took four years to shoot and cost a staggering £45 million to produce.
500 hours of unedited film were shot using remote-controlled mini helicopters, divers and hydrodynamic cameras dragged behind boats. LINK (Via: The Guardian)
