      "Great White Lies", will screen at the 2015 WCFF in New York, October 16-25 as an East Coast Premiere. Focusing on the Western Australian government's decision in January 2014 to hunt and kill great white sharks. a protected species in Australia, film producer Skyler Thomas, visits Australia, South Africa and New Zealand to learn about shark culling practices in each of these countries. Interviewing scientists, surfers, politicians and activists, "Great White Lies", thoroughly examines the history of shark culling and ultimately asks the question, "Is this really about human safety or is something else taking place here?" When science, statistics, and history all tell us that shark-culling is flawed and an ineffective strategy in managing human and shark interactions, we are then forced to ask the next logical question; if it doesn't work, then why is it still happening? The apparent answer to that question will leave film viewers not only rethinking mankind's relationship with sharks but with the planet in general

            Produced by Kennan and Karen Ward and six years in the making, this is an exceptional film will make East Coast premiere at the 2015 WCFF in New York, October 16-25. Along the Northern Coast of California the Pacific ocean creates a rich environment silhouetting a World Heritage sea and landscape. The marine fog that forms along the coast allows a unique habitat for life to flourish. We follow the main characters that are deeply influenced by this place. The human characters name is Feynner, a long term caretaker of the land. The wildlife characters include bobcats, condors and hummingbirds. We learn Big Sur is a land that we tried to tame, to make our own, but didn't succeed because in some places on Earth, the physical and spiritual characteristics are too much for humans to conquer. So we learn to live by the laws of the natural world and dramatic ecosystem that we call Big Sur.

                  "The Story of All Life Part II" picks up where Part I left off, detailing the rise of biodiversity in the Smoky Mountains. Next, the story of the human-caused decline in life diversity is explained, followed by the creation of the park and subsequent rebound and reintroduction of many species. This #SmokiesCOOL video was created with Rockwood Middle School students before and during their 5-day stay at Tremont in May 2014. We recommend that you watch "All The Salamanders" and "The Story of All Life Part I" prior to watching this video.

                      "All The Salamanders" tells the story of the exceptional biodiversity in the Great Smoky Mountains. More species of salamander exist in the Smokies than anywhere else on the planet. How and why this is the case is explained in the first part of the video. The second part has students singing about their experiences with salamanders while at Tremont Institute, and wondering about the future, as many human-caused threats loom over these charismatic amphibians. This was our first #SmokiesCOOL video, filmed back in May of 2013. We brought in science rap master, Tom McFadden, to guide us through the process. Throughout Maplewood Richmond Heights' stay at Tremont, Tom and Caleb worked with the students to bring the salamander story to life. "All The Salamanders" was an official selection at the 2014 Colorado Environmental Film Festival.
