Did you miss Teresa and Ben at our last Meet-Up and Chat? You’ve got another chance to come meet the captains turned documentarians! Come visit with Teresa, Ben, and hosts John Casey and Jenn Sheppard on Long Island, New York. On May 5th from 6-8pm The Cull House, at 75 Terry Street, Sayville, NY will host our meet-up with snacks provided. Captains Teresa and Ben will share a discussion on simple living, voyaging, and their upcoming film focusing on their journey to Labrador, Canada where they hope to discover an uncharted iceberg.
For the voyage, Ben and Teresa will combine their talents and become co-captains of a single boat. “It’s two captains and one boat. It’s going to be interesting,” says Eriksen, “Teresa is more of a ‘by-the-book’ sailor, and I’m more ‘by-the-seat-of-my-pants.”
Set to begin filming in partnership with Doctrine Creative in June, a production team of nine are busy preparing for filming and the journey at sea. As many of you know, I’m proud to be among this group of volunteers! Some readers met me last month, when I hosted Ben and Teresa at the Meet-Up in Annapolis. We are having a great time gearing up for this movie. Come join the excitement!
“This film will have a bit of something for everyone. It’s an environmental film, and adventure story, and at its core–a story about the human need for challenge and connection with the outside world in which many of us no longer inhabit.” –Merry O’Brien, Production
