The ocean serves as the lungs of our planet with over fifty percent of the oxygen we breathe produced by the ocean. EVERY SECOND BREATH, a series of video shorts, will enlighten viewers about our oceans in crisis and inspire them to become champions of change.

EVERY SECOND BREATH will take viewers on a global journey, introducing them to citizens of the world with a strong connection to the sea. Activists and artists, students and seniors, entrepreneurs and everyday people will share their stories of the ocean’s profound influence on their lives and their commitment to champion its restoration. Viewers will join the film’s narrators on journeys of discovery into the sacredness of the ocean, and be inspired to live in ways that reverse the unknowing harm that they themselves might have done. The stories are hopeful, with compelling narratives to serve as a catalyst to change minds, encourage viewers to alter entrenched behaviors and start to inform or reenergize social movements. The efforts of many people bringing hope, new solutions and actions that can help make changes to the environment through grassroots ocean activist work. Each character’s story brings in emotions, some humor, a great deal of inspiration and new possibilities. As vital as the ocean is to sustaining life, its health and well-being have been overlooked, undervalued, even dismissed.

Informative and inspirational, EVERY SECOND BREATH will reveal how our thoughtless actions not only damage the sea, but threaten the viability of our entire planet. Unlike informative films produced to educate the public on the science of the oceans and climate change, EVERY SECOND BREATH will personalize this daunting environmental dilemma, creating a sense of ownership that not only connects us to the ocean, but to each other.
