Six Months At Sea In The Merchant Marine
In this short documentary, I tried to answer some of the common questions that I usually get about shipping. The footage I took myself using fairly basic cameras that I could fit in my pocket while I was on the job as an AB (able bodied sailor) in the deck department. The story follows me on a six month journey around the world on a container ship which was on a run between New York and Singapore via the Suez Canal. This was my first time going to sea on a large container-ship so everything was relatively new to me, therefore please excuse the couple of shipping terms I misused (such as saying deckhand and license when I should have said credential). I have been on many ships since and will continue to ship out for the foreseeable future. Oh and I did not mention how much money I made because I did not want this to be the focus of the film. I hope that sailors around the world will watch and pay rates fluctuate wildly from company to company and nation to nation. The pay was fairly good and since I had all my stuff in storage at home, it was certainly worth it! Thanks for watching.

Wildlife Laws: Only the Fastest Will Survive | Free Documentary Nature
In a land of dangers, plant-eating animals are always at risk, and never more so than at the time of their birth; out on the open they are vulnerable and there are few places to hide. But luckily some are born to run…
Out on the African plains life can get off to a shaky start. Millions of baby wildebeests, zebras and antelopes are born at the same time. All of them must struggle to their feet in minutes. They must master their legs and be ready to run with the herd. If they don't they will be picked off by predators like lions, cheetahs, or crocodiles.
Whatever their role in life, little ones will face one challenge after another, whether it's trying to keep up with the herd during migration, getting stuck in the mud during a drought, being separated from its mother, panicking in bad weather, or even coming face to face with a predator.
The point will come in every young animal's life when the skills it learned will be put to good use. One of the most powerful wake-up calls to the harsh reality of nature comes to a young wildebeest during its migration. A dramatic river crossing, where there are more than just fast currents and steep banks to deal with - a river teaming with crocodiles. One by one his herd mates are picked off by the great reptiles, but when his time comes he proves he was born to run!
