Looks like a new Cousteau film about the underwater world is in the works, and members of the public will have a chance to help fund it.
Independent film company 3D Entertainment will be launching a crowdfunding campaign later this month for money to complete production of “Odyssea 3D,” a 90-minute documentary film directed by Jean-Michel Cousteau and featuring him as well as his two children, Celine and Fabien Cousteau.
Cutting-edge 3D technology will allow audiences to discover the ocean as never seen before, and help them realize why protecting the ocean is so important.
Jean-Michel Cousteau wants to present the movie at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2016 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Palme d’Or that his father, Jacques Cousteau, received for “The Silent World” in 1956.
Consequently, 3D Entertainment is looking for funds to complete the film on time and will be launching a crowdfunding campaign on January 26th, 2016, on Indiegogo.
