^ you can probably reach him easily enough :D

Also worth noting from his blog -


Although the topic of ecological problems seems to be brought up quite frequently, I’d like to send another message with my short and clip. I know how many people out their love marine life. I have worked with aquarists and commercial coral collectors to make this movie possible and I could see how much people are ready to invest in what they love. I have almost no problems with keeping corals in aquaria and commercial collection (when it's done properly and on license), which is a mosquito bite to the Great Barrier Reef compared to pressure for the expanding mining industry. Yet after showing first drafts of my clip to a few people I got a reaction that made me extremely sad. It was like “Cool! Now I want more corals in my tank/get a marine tank!” It made me sad because I could see people putting so much money (and finding it in any financial circumstances!) into an outrageously expensive hobby. Unfortunately, the desire to have something beautiful at home and posses fancy stuff (even when it's a living object) is usually stronger than the desire to contribute to environmental protection. I know that my clip will be shared largely in aquarist circles and I’d like to say: I’m not asking to throw away your passions and hobbies, but please think carefully about what you really love, protect, and invest in. The Great Barrier Reef is in grave danger and you have the power and finances to change its fate instead of scavenging what's left of it.
