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
