Swim Shorts Film Festival 2016 trailer

I had wanted to create an event centered around water conservation for some time. After hearing a fantastic presentation by the St. Johns Riverkeeper, I decided it should be a fundraiser for their organization. I secured the cooperation of Sun Ray Cinema, collected $1000+ in donations from local businesses for prize baskets, was interviewed on the local NPR station, and commissioned local artist Crystal Floyd to make beautiful topiary trophies. All manner of individuals submitted videos on the subject of water and gathered at Sun Ray to watch their work on the big screen. We packed the theatre and gathered $1000 for the St. Johns Riverkeeper in ticket and merchandise sales.
