A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the Rubber Jellyfish fundraising campaigns through Indiegogo and Documentary Australia Foundation (DAF). The DAF campaign is still running but the Indiegogo campaign is now closed all all perks have been mailed out (please let us know if you ordered a perk package but have not received it). It was so much fun putting the perk packages together and it’s been awesome getting emails from a few people who have received them 🙂 We included items in the perk packages that would help the overwhelming issue of ocean plastification. Most notably, a set of beeswax wraps (environmentally friendly clingfilm alternative) which people are loving! (and so do we!).
With the generous donations we have received so far, we have been able to bring aboard a fantastic editor named Adam with experience working on a number of high profile television series in the UK. More than that, though, we chose Adam (after receiving interest from over 30 professional screen editors) because of his positive attitude and humble, happy spirit. We are so excited to watch him bring our footage to life. It has been over three years now since we first started filming so he has a big task ahead of him!
We are moving steadily now toward the finish line with the goal of completing the film by August, 2017. Stay tuned!
Again, the DAF campaign is still running if you would like to get in on it – especially now that the Australian end of financial year is looming. All contributions made through DAF are tax deductible and will help us pay for services and the acquisition of media needed to complete the film. As a small gesture of thanks, we will acknowledge you in the film’s credits!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
I love reading blogs like this while enjoying an ice cold beverage.
No one does it like you do.
“I pay a visit each day a few web sites and sites to read content, however this website provides quality based articles.”
These two better settle their score now before everything ends up burnt!
These two sure know how to enjoy a movie!
This has to be the happiest couple on planet Earth!
Nothing makes him more happy than reading a newspaper underneath a tree.
Nothing relaxes him like reading does.
Nice answer back in return of this difficulty with real arguments and explaining everything about that.
You should be a part of a contest for one of the greatest websites on the net.
I most certainly will highly recommend this site!
