And after all that… The screenplay was acknowledged as a Semi-Finalist by the
Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Nicholl Fellowship Award
More than just a movie…
Joe Hoagland & Chris Jaymes // Island Dolphin Care
While doing research for a possible screenplay, Chris found himself in Key Largo where he met Joe and Deena Hoagland, founders of a non-profit organization called Island Dolphin Care, and the family that the screenplay came to be about.
Years later, Jaymes now works alongside the Hoagland family and their organization to help find solutions for the future of their animals, as well as, the ocean habitat as a whole, which stimulated the beginning of a concept… The Ocean Aquarium.
