For 16 years I have been telling the story of the Tasmanian Tiger, and more importantly the story of Tasmania through the presence of this elusive animal and the people who keep its secrets…and through my journey telling stories first to backpacking tourists and now hopefully to the world through film,I have encountered many strange and wonderful experiences and people.
Just in the last year things have begun to hot-ten up for the film and for the Thylacine (Tasmanian Tiger) and I find myself in the position where I have to make haste to get the rest of the journey underway and shot. Its gonna be quite a ride and I have some leads to meet and more will come. That has just been the way.
To date I have shot dozens of hours worth of footage and interviews in the wilderness areas of the Tarkine and in Nursing homes, Museums and Mountains…There is an incredible story here that has already had me experience events leading to mild post traumatic stress and fear of my safety. But this only strengthens the resolve and makes things clearer in the end.
And in the end? Well, let’s just say they are here…but what do we do…first we learn the real story, first we learn the truth and then we can make decisions. I wish I could tell you more now…I can’t, but it will come.
I will be setting up a dedicated website soon for this project. My producer and I have decided not to go through official channels to fund the film, it has mostly been a labor of love to date and will continue to be so…but if you would like to contribute a donation of anything, to see this happen and as soon as possible you can through the paypal link below right…
… if you do, Thankyou!! It really is appreciated and you can send me an email to let me know, so I can keep you informed.
It is gonna be a good film, a great film actually and you will get credit if you support it. Unless of course you too wish to remain a secret!
Thank you again!
