Action Grantee: Sally Snow / Long Distance Relationship / LAMAVE

Sally Snow / Their Future Our Future: "Long Distance Relationship"

This is a film by Action Grantee Sally Snow. The first in the series of five films championing sustainable marine wildlife tourism in the Philippines. This film stars the 'butanding' (whale shark) and demonstrates why it is important to "Keep your distance" when interacting with marine wildlife. It describes how animals are much happier when we don't interfere with them.   Learn more about the project here.

About the Project

Sally Snow's My Future is Your Future videos are part of a campaign by LAMAVE, The Large Marine Vertebrate Research Institute Philippines, to support passing a new marine wildlife interaction law in the Philippines and to educate locals & tourists about respectful wildlife interaction. The project will consist of a set of 1-minute videos to "inspire, educate, and empower, while creating a sense of respect and ownership over our actions."

CMG met Sally through our Action Grant pitch session at the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival. Her project was one of eight finalists chosen to pitch and was selected as one of three winners. CMG awarded My Future is Your Future a $10,000 grant to cover necessary production and distribution costs over the next year.
