43 and 80; An Extremely Fishy Story

To whom it may concern

I am producing a film this coming summer about charter halibut fishing
and how it is impacted by conservation and allocation
regulations. I have been employed in Gustavus Alaska for over five
years, and have personally seen some unfortunate
effects from allocation decisions.

My film is titled 43 and 80 and will be a discussion of how future
conservation efforts can better regulate fish stocks for charter, 
commercial, and subsistence fisheries.  While I hope to make
a compelling argument for Alaskan charters, I don't want to produce a
propaganda piece. For that reason, I am meeting with parties on all
sides of the debate, to fully understand how the charter industry is
being treated with regard to other industries/fisheries.

Currently, I am running a Kickstarter campaign to raise $7,500. The
money will be used for crew expenses, equipment costs, and post
production work necessary to make the film as compelling as possible.

I am attaching a link to my film teaser. I am seeking any and all kinds of 
donations to the project. If you know of any sources that would be 
interested in this project, can you please forward the information along. I 
want this film to enlighten viewers on how conservation impacts

Thank you very much,
