Click to show meeting description

Tom Fitz

Learn the story behind the story from filmmaker Tom Fitz, who will discuss working for the BBC’s Natural History Unit, Nat Geo, and more on wildlife and environmental films for the past three decades. Come for Tom’s stills, videos, and behind the scenes stories, and bring your questions!

Does Tom's name sound familiar? NEADC members may remember Tom from his amazing footage at the Boston Sea Rovers Film festival a few years ago. Another great presentation from afar thanks to Zoom!

Tom Fitz is an American cameraman, producer and director who has documented our planet's natural wonders for over thirty years. As a freelance cinematographer, Tom has worked for the BBC, PBS, National Geographic and many others. He is the recipient of four Primetime Emmy Awards for cinematography and two for outstanding series, as well as two BAFTA awards.

In 2008, Tom started Schoolyard Films, Inc. with the belief that educating today's students about the natural world and the challenges it faces is of critical importance to tomorrow's healthy environment. With Schoolyard, Tom produces films specifically for use in K-12 classrooms that are available for free with accompanying study guides to teachers worldwide.

Don't Let Your Membership Lapse

Even while they were closed, the New England Aquarium was still caring for animals and maintaining the facilities and exhibits. They were still keeping a crew at work, and running virtual programs.

Now that they are open with limited visitors, it's more important than ever to maintain your membership so they can continue to keep up with these expenses.

Your dive club membership ($15 add on to the Aquarium membership) allows us to have speakers every month throughout the year (which we will continue to do online).

The Aquarium launched an online advocacy tool as a way that people can show their support for the Aquarium. The tool helps visitors submit a letter to their elected officials asking Congress to support emergency relief funding for non-profit aquariums, zoos, and museums across the country. It takes less than 30 seconds and costs nothing to participate.

Support Your Local Dive Shop!

The local dive shops across New England continue to need your business! Many are now open reduced hours or open by appointment, and still offering classes virtually or equipment servicing.
