#SaveSanMiguel

November 2014

As one of the last intact watersheds on the Baja peninsula, San Miguel was also the first wave to be surfed in the entirety of Mexico. The film explores the connection between the health of the San Miguel watershed and the quality of the wave, and the efforts to protect both.

“This could become the Mexican version of Trestles – a State Park with a world class wave at the center of it.” Said Nik Strong-Cvetich, Executive Director of Save The Waves.

Based on the film, Save The Waves will demonstrate to the Governor of Baja California the local and international support for creation of the statepark through a petition, and study of the local economic impact of the wave.

Host A Show

Want to host a screening? Great! Here are 5 steps to get started:

1

Setup a computer and stream it online with friends in the room.

If you can’t make this happen we would be happy to mail a DVD, it just might take some time because there’s a good change we’ll be out shooting on location for a new film.

2

Choose your space.

You can show the film in your backyard, living room, school, university, church, library…wherever…just make sure there’s a power supply!

3

Set up the technology.

The space you choose will determine the technology you need. The basic components are: power supply, computer with hi-res digital copy of movie, speakers, digital projector or TV, appropriate cables, and screen. If your space doesn’t have all the necessary components, you can rent equipment on the cheap.

The basics: connect the video signal from your computer to the projector/TV; connect the audio signal from your computer to the speakers/TV. If you’re renting a projector, the company can tell you the details of how it works. Easy peasy!

4

Host the event, discuss, and take pictures!

This is the fun part. Enjoy and don’t forget to take pictures of the screening!
