Following One Ocean: No Limits successful screenings at festivals in San Francisco, Newport Beach & Boston this year, the film has now been selected as a Finalist in the Surfing & Ocean Sports category at the Blue Ocean Film Festival in Florida in November 2014. It is the only Irish film to have been selected for this festival.
The BLUE Ocean Film Festival & Conservation Summit takes places every two years & allows ocean leaders, filmmakers, photographers, scientists, explorers, entertainment executives – and the general public– to gather in Tampa Bay/ St. Petersburg, Florida to honour the best in ocean filmmaking, to learn more about the issues facing our oceans, and to collaborate on improving the future of our oceans and humanity in a 7-day event.
‘One Ocean: No Limits’, the first Irish documentary on the subject of the extreme sport of ocean rowing, follows a young Irish novice rower through the highs and lows of rowing unassisted as part of a crew of six across the vast Atlantic Ocean from Morocco to Barbados.
One Ocean: No Limits is also a completely no-budget film, and was self-funded by the Producer/Director. The film was produced and directed by Sarah McCann, who also performed major camera & editing roles. The film was co-edited by John Murphy. The final sound mix and online/grading took place in Gorilla Post-Production. The film has been acquired upon completion for broadcast by RTE (TX date TBC).
