"The Black Shorts" a documentary film

Mission: To preserve and conserve Hawaii's land, ocean and culture for future generations from exploitation and over commercialization.

Thank you for supporting my film. My goal is to raise at least $5,000. With that I can pay for licensing archival video footage and photographs from the 1970's. Thus far this film has been funded by myself. The story is told by the IPS surf directors and founding members of the Hui O He'e Nalu. If people are so kind pledge more and surpass my goal of $5,000, then I can hire a musician for film score music and a graphic artist. Thanks again for any support you can give.
