MSNBC Seastar wasting syndrome

Ah drat, I really meant to get a teaser post written before the MSNBC seastar story went live but,  that’s life I guess when you are a bit too busy playing dress up in Duwamish trash on the weekends.

A month or so ago my dear friend (and the producer of our Emmy winning documentary on Sea Otters vs Climate Change) Michael Werner asked if I’d be interested in doing a story about seastar wasting syndrome for MSNBC.  I start feeling a bit bad because seastars are kind of the gift that keeps on giving for me, but also I worry that we are beating the dead starfish at times.   I quickly came to my senses and remembered that only about 1 in 10 people that I talk to even have the faintest idea that the wasting syndrome is going on, so more PR can’t be a bad thing.

Michael said ‘we’ll do it a bit different, I think you’ll like it!’  After working with him on the Sea Otter story, hearing the initial concept and seeing how beautifully the finished product came out, I trusted him without hesitation.

A handful of shooting and recording venues later,  some beautiful beaches,  a couple epic sunsets and a whole lot of plankton I present to you:

Thank you Michael Werner and Katie Campbell… As usual you knock it out of the park!
