Since as long as I remember, I’ve had a natural longing to be near water and earth. I wake up every morning, lucky to live in California, thankful and fascinated by how beautiful and giving nature is. I appreciate every season and shade of the sky that the earth willingly provides to us humans. The idea for this documentary came to me shortly after the last documentary I made about homelessness in Downtown LA in Spring 2016. I was at an event about creating ocean friendly gardens and found out all about storm drain runoff. That summer, I volunteered picking up trash along the beach and then took a class which coincidentally discussed storm drain runoff. It became clear that this information was something crucial to the survival of the ocean and consequently, humans. I spent five months planning, filming, and editing “Six.” because I have such a strong passion to keep this planet for generations to come. Too many species are dying too fast and humans CAN prevent this.
