Crowdfunding Campaign For ‘Blue Men’s Riddle’ Student Film Underway


A crew of British university students is looking to make a film about ocean advocacy with a touch of Scottish folklore.

The movie “The Blue Men’s Riddle” follows two brothers as they travel out to the Minch, a strait off the coast of northwestern Scotland, to cover up their company’s oil spill in the hopes of saving them millions and their reputations.

Unbeknownst to those men, that area is inhabited by the mythical “Blue Men” of Scottish folklore and legend. When the executives’ carelessness and greed attract the attention of the Blue Men, they wind up needing more than money.

According to Emily Langdon, the film’s co-director, director of photography and producer:

“This film means so much to me as I’m passionate about the environment and want to be actively helping the climate movement more…. With your help we can make this film and you can help me get into a male dominated industry in a section of it where wildlife underwater female film makers are rare. “

Check out the students’ crowdfunding page on Indiegogo here or watch the intro video below.

(Remember: This is a crowdfunding campaign, so you are helping to fund the development of a project, but not a finished product. Please make sure you research the project before spending any money.)
