"The Living Port": A Film on Commerce and Trade in the Chesapeake Bay

block Nauticus

Nauticus, The National Maritime Center will produce a film, tentatively titled “The Living Port,” to interpret the historic and current role of the Chesapeake Bay in commerce. The film is one aspect in the Center's campaign to build an entire new gallery focusing on the Norfolk area's port. The film will tell the 400 year-old story of how people in the region have used the Chesapeake for trade, and will explore the challenges of balancing this delicate ecosystem with maritime commerce. Working with a documentary-multimedia firm, Nauticus will produce the high-definition film to be shown to the Center's 400,000 annual visitors in the Living Sea Theater. The film will also be made available to other Gateway sites so that it may be viewed across the Network. The City of Norfolk will match the grant. "The Living Port” will help visitors appreciate the Chesapeake's long-standing central role in the region's and the nation's economy, as seen through shipping on the Bay's waters.

Amount Funded: $100,000.00

Start Date: 08/15/2003
