What Has

Happened

The clear water in many springs is
turning a greenish tint.
Why? What can be done?

We will explore theories about how the springs are evolving and what the future holds for them. The focus will be on scientists who have the most empirical information about the current conditions of springs.

And using breathtaking cinematography, we will show the beauty that remains, bringing the springs to life in a spectacular way.

We will be the first filmmakers to produce an immersive, educational 360- degrees video about the springs.

What kind of intimate interactions

do visitors have with springs?

What do these visitors know

about nitrate levels and flow?

Why should they care?

 
 

What Can Be Done

Pumping water from the aquifer is necessary for life and business in Florida. What is the balancing point?

Our documentary will explore different sectors’ varying perceptions about the springs and will explore different suggested solutions. By having a broad range of voices, we are allowing our viewers and audience to learn about not only the problems but the challenges involved in addressing them.

"Just like the Everglades is a very unique ecosystem, 

so too are the springs that are to the north of them. 

And I think we have a duty to protect them."

-former Florida Gov. Jeb. Bush

Explica Media

EXPLICA MEDIA’S MANAGING DIRECTOR OSCAR CORRAL

has pioneered a unique brand of narrative non-fiction storytelling: entertaining, educational, inspiring.

 

His previous documentaries include Tom Wolfe Gets Back to Blood, and the Emmy-award winning Exotic Invaders: Pythons in the Everglades, both of which have run nationally on PBS; as well as Return of the Panther, a film about Florida’s endangered Florida panthers commissioned by the National Parks Service.

They are refreshing takes on complex issues that help spark important dialogue.


Explica Media has access to the people on the ground in north Florida who are involved, directly or indirectly, in the springs issue.

 

Explica Media has identified protagonists who will organically
intersect with the core themes of the film and embody the rich diversity of people with a growing stake in Florida’s springs.

This film will be a groundbreaking, educational exploration of water issues in north Florida.
