We are in the process of making a film about the underwater forest that surrounds
our coasts. We follow the Victorian ladies as they lead the way in identifying the
thousand of seaweeds in our seas.
The Story of a Liberty Ship. In this film I am using the wreck of the James Eagan Layne as a vehicle to show how important these Liberty ship were not just supplying us with supplies in the Second World War. I want the viewer to see
the power that went into the building of these ships, and how they change the life and times of so many people after the great depression.
When you look at all the different lives these ugly ducking as there were called, touched, from the building of these ships, to the sailors that work and dead on them, and the lives of the people in Britain desperate for those much needed food supplies.
The wreck sits on the sea bed, the effect these sunken wrecks have on the marine life, changing bear metal into beautiful underwater gardens providing a haven for young fish to grow so that generation of divers can enjoy there splendour.
After all this energy that went into the war effort, and the energy that is still going on today, all down to these 7,000 tons of metal, and the beauty they have given us, they were a product of war and now a thing of beauty. I hope that this comes across to the viewer.
