In early 2009 a recently graduated film student and a journalist who grew up on Long Island got together to produce a film about the Shoreham Nuclear Power Plant fiasco. Originally planned as a 10 minute YouTube video, the project grew to what might be a documentary lasting 100 minutes.
Rod Adams and Gwyneth Cravens recently spoke with Ray the Squirrel, the man behind the camera, who is working feverishly to put the finishing touches on what promises to be an important story full of lessons available to be learned.
Ray is a struggling film school graduate and is could use some assistance in getting to the finish line of the project due to some unexpected costs and a desire to distribute his work for free on the Internet. Please listen to the show and if you are intrigued by the project and want to see the end results, consider offering a donation. Ray has set up a project page on Kickstarter, a web based fund raising tool for struggling artists looking for patrons to support their valuable work.
