The Breach – A Film for the Salmon

Sage Fly Fishing - The Breach - Mark Titus

$40,000 dollars in 22 days. This is what stands between Mark Titus and his dedicated crew behind the new film The Breach. Over a year ago Mark was struck by a passage in a book that described the mighty Elwha River’s race of giant King Salmon, which produced countless one hundred pound fish. Beyond the scale bending numbers, what really grabbed Mark was the struggle and perseverance of these fish to return to the impenetrable concrete dam walls year after year.

Within a few days, Mark had begun the interview process for his new film The Breach. In Mark’s words the film is “not only about the breaching of those dams, but of a much larger breach of contract between human beings and nature – specifically wild salmon – and if we want to have a shot at repairing things to sustain future generations – we’d better pay attention – right now.” The film will outline stories of hope for the Salmon returning to their Northwest waters but also explore some of the major factors which have pushed the species to the brink of survival.

While Mark and his team plan to produce this film “no matter what,” they have left it up to you, to us, to make it happen. Through Kickstarter, an online fundraising site where Mark must reach his $40,000 goal or get nothing at all, production of The Breach is in our hands. If you would like to be a co-creator in this critical project please visit The Breach Kickstarter page.

More about Kickstarter:
“Kickstarter is a dynamic way to fund creative ideas and ambitious endeavors. Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully funded or no money changes hands. In other words, if we don’t raise our goal of $40,000, we lose everything. And, incidentally, our goal of $40,000 is the bare minimum we need to get our boots on the ground filming in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.”

    Dont forget British Columbia in regards to the Salmon, they are all connected along the coast. What ever harms the BC Pacific Salmon, harms them all, we have big problems in Bc.
    Is there anyway to include BC in this documentary?
    Or join forces?

    Karen,

    Please watch the trailer. The film will focus on salmon in BC as well, specifically a stream restoration project and salmon farming.
