Help me make more films that matter by supporting my trip to Jackson Hole Science Media Awards in Boston!

Main image

My dream is to inspire people and promote change through filmmaking.

While studying at Otago University, I wanted to raise awareness about the concerning global decline of bees around the world. Fortunately, I met three amazing people protecting New Zealand's honey bees from a deadly disease ... with detector dogs.

BUT some scientists disputed the effectiveness of these dogs. I decided to make a documentary to find out more.

Now, over a year after the films release, detector dogs are helping beekeepers all across the country and requests are pouring in for more dogs to be trained for bee disease surveillance!

More recently, my film "A Million Dollar Nose", was nominated Best Newcomer at the Jackson Hole Science Media Awards - a prestigious film festival conference at the end of September in Boston! This event is a great opportunity for me to share my film and connect with content creators from around the world who can help me make more films that matter.

With just a few weeks until the conference, time is short and I need your help to get me to Boston!

Use of Funds:

All donations will be used to help pay for flights and conference fees.
