Social Media Strategist, Long Gone Wild (documentary film)
Long Gone Wild (LGW), is an exciting and important new documentary film focusing on the plight of captive orcas, picking up where the acclaimed documentary Blackfish left off while telling a uniquely new and different story…
The film centers on five primary areas: (1) The Blackfish Effect (what it did and didn’t accomplish i.e., SeaWorld took a major hit to its bottom line, but the 20 orcas are still there); (2) The case against captivity (orcas are forced to live in barren concrete tanks); (3) Orcas as sentient animals (their great capacity to think, feel, communicate, and empathize); (4) The Whale Sanctuary Project and its model seaside sanctuary for retired orcas – providing a safe, permanent home in their natural habitat; and, (5) The ominous threat to orcas posed by Russia and China, triggered by the explosive growth of mega-aquariums in China.
The documentary will be released in June of 2019. Leading up to the release of the film we seek a talented, passionate, knowledgeable and results-oriented social media intern to design and implement a social media campaign that will generate excitement and awareness about the film. This is a unique and focused opportunity for a special student who is interested in film/product marketing and who has strong social media skills who will benefit from this high visibility experience and help us drive a successful launch of the film.
