Online Release of "Just Beneath the Surface"

This is a day I have really been anticipating. I am very excited to release Episode One of "Just Beneath the Surface," the mini-documentary focusing on the Long Beach Island Region. I worked with the extremely talented Oak Leaf Media Of course, everyone likes to come here for the beach and ice cream, but the idea was to tell the stories of the people, passions and culture that make this place what it is. We tried to show what is literally just beneath what you see on the surface - two hyperlocal food sources on LBI in blue claw crabs and Jersey tomatoes, and find out what it is about Southern Ocean County that inspires local artists. Meet Richie the Crabber, Tomato Jay, Bunkerfish and Cathleen Engelsen. We are currently planning a whole season of episodes and all the social interactions, shares, and likes will help. #beachcultureredefined
