Oregon Sea Grant climate video receives gold award

Posted by: | December 9, 2009 Comments Off on Oregon Sea Grant climate video receives gold award |

The video, Building a Resilient Coast: Maine Confronts Climate Change, was produced in cooperation with Maine Sea Grant under a grant from the NOAA Climate Program Office. The gold prize is from the international Ava Awards (Audio/Visual Awards), which “recognize outstanding work by creative professionals involved in the concept, writing, direction, shooting, and editing of audio/visual materials and programs.” Twelve percent of this year’s entries received a gold prize.

The creative personnel of Resilient Coast are from Oregon Sea Grant: Joe Cone is the producer, videographer, and writer; Stevon Roberts, editor; Patricia Andersson, designer. Susan White, associate director of Maine Sea Grant, is the co-producer. The video was released on DVD in summer 2009 and on the Oregon and Maine Sea Grant web sites; it has also been shown on the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.

Resilient Coast was guided by preliminary research conducted with Maine coastal property owners to determine what climate-related issues they were concerned about. Individual segments of the one-hour program address those concerns. One very short excerpt follows. The entire program can be viewed at
