so i never followed up on my previous post regarding the international ranger documentary by my friend sean willmore. apparently the worldwide simultaneous premiere was a big success… his grassroots effort to create awareness for conservation and respect for his fellow rangers as well as create a fund to help the families of rangers killed in the line of duty has taken off with the Thin Green Line Foundation.
The Gala Green Carpet Premiere in Melbourne was a huge success! the film took in $100K worldwide and sean will travel to africa later this month to present the proceeds to the families he met. the next phase, Project Connect, will take him around the world showing the film and speaking to groups in romania, switzerland and california, amongst other places.
The DVD turned out fantastic. i received my copy a few days ago and have since watched it a few times… and yeah, i’m shilling for sean, but it’s a worthy cause and a job well done! and if he gets any more fame from this thing, i’ll have to temper his ego with a few well-timed anecdotes in australian tabloids… oh yeah, i’m talking about the brothel in ushuaia mr. green gandhi!
