Thumbs up

Just got done watching the Seattle special premiere of "Morning Light".
Roy Disney was great as well as the others who were part of the movie. You should bring at least 10 of your friends to the movie this weekend. It was all about the journey to get to the goal and changing your life. The video was great, the team work was fantastic and all in all heart pumping excitement. I won't ruin the movie for you but this was filmed as it happened in the race and could not have been planned better than how things naturally unfolded. Disney and we in turn get a real treat.

You might wonder how they filmed from outside the boat while it was in the middle of the Pacific. They had a catamaran that was a camera chase boat which was Faucett's that could make that 2228 mile journey as it was so efficient on diesel engines. You will see it as they come to the final buoy in Hawaii. It blends into the movie so watch closely.

As a scuba diver I enjoyed the sea life, dolphins, whales and underwater shots.

I give it a two thumbs up and a do not miss if you like sailing. It was a fantastic adventure and great movie. The actual actors were really nice people that I met in person. It will change your view of how you see those around you definitely. The safety briefings will also be of value to you as a sailer.

Make this movie a must see so they will do more in the future.

If it doesn't move SHRED IT!

Only on the two coasts?!?!***$%!

The only problem is that Disney apparently thinks only sailors (and others who would enjoy the movie) live on the two coasts. With the exception of Ontario (Toronto), the best I can tell is that it is NOT showing in North America that doesn't have ocean front. I went to the official site where they list the theaters and that is what I've found.

I guess I'll just have to wait for DVD (which shouldn't be too long if they are really only showing it on the two coasts).

The strange point during the question and answer session at the special showing in Bellevue, Washington is when Roy Disney said that it was coming out on select screens in small parts of both coasts.

It did not seem that they had confidence in it's entertainment pull. Roy has done the Transpac I think 16 times and wanted to put a little excitement in it for himself by having a challenge of putting young people in the race and getting some type of compensation for the cost.

On a movie note: If you love sailing and have done a race or two it will be fun to watch. If you have little boating experience the coverage will have different meaning to you as it documents the preparation and race to a extent that could be covered in an hour and a half. If you like sailing, sea life and water it will be worth watching once. If you enjoy deserts, mountains, and land, it will be a bore.

It is a nice film done nicely and I only got a little bored when they lost wind during the race but that is what happens, why there are weather decisions and a challenge to someone who has been there and done that. Wait for the DVD and rent it. This film should have come out in the spring.

Morning Light - Theater Listings

Damned few cinemas nationwide. for those in the Baltimore/Wash/Annapolis world--3 choices. Landmark in Bethesda and east Bawlmer, and the Harbour Cinema on rt. 2 Solomans Island rd. Gotta see a sailing film on the big screen if at all possible!
