  • Community Research

    Have you got relevant info or want to take part in the research? You can join the team!

    Maybe you are from Cape Verde and have some suggestions,
    or you are a student specializing in fisheries or ocean biology;
    you could also be just somebody into these issues or have taken this project by heart.

    If you have any relevant information around the issues we want to investigate, why not share them with the production team?

    Why not become a part of our ongoing research?
    If you'd like to go more in depth why not drop us a line and discuss how you could help to consolidate this stage of production.


    If together we decide to start a collaboration, you will be credited in the film as part of the research team and have a special note on this website.

  • Using Crowd-Funding

    Using crowd-funding to finance your project doesn't mean that traditional routes are out of the question. Rather, one should see them as complimenting each other.

More time now has to be spent on finding funding than in the making of your actual creative work, and there are still no guarantees for even a cent to come your way. Faced with this we must look for new ways to continue making our work.
