I’m very fortunate to say that Nicolas Teichrob is a good friend. We have worked together several times and I hope we work together a lot more in the future. One of the things that makes Nic such a good person and talented individual is that he has beliefs and is willing to stand up for what he sees as right thing to do. STAND is one of those things. Watch on and then use the links below to educate yourself about the issue and the film. Then perhaps support the film and the cause.
STAND, presented by Quiksilver Waterman, will take viewers on a journey through the waters of B.C.’s west coast. Through the stories of an aboriginal high school class building their own stand-up paddleboards as a form of protest, the efforts of expedition stand-up paddler Norm Hann, and the powerful surfing of iconic west coast native Raph Bruhwiler, the diversity of people, landscape and wildlife that would be affected by an oil spill will be articulated. STAND will take you to the core of the issue and unfurl the soul of B.C.’s west coast one paddle stroke at a time.
The crew is currently raising funds through the popular crowd-sourcing platform IndieGoGo, in order to complete post-production and bring this story into the mainstream consciousness. You can become a champion of the Great Bear and help protect our precious coastlines by donating to the project and in return receive some great rewards.
