To-date, this project has been completely self-funded. Managing to leverage her personal resources and network thus far, to continue creating Christine is raising funds to complete post-production on her next project, called the Red Road.

The Red Road was my Ren's first underwater performance in the open ocean, and the concept is built around Native American spirituality, roughly translated, in regards to "walking the red road" - a path that means living a life of truth, respect and harmony with nature and others. After flying herself to Phuket, Thailand, Ren managed to convince a local underwater photographer, Adriano Trapani, and Sea Bees Diving, to donate their time, tanks, boat, and more... all for a shot at creating beautiful imagery that would raise awareness about coral bleaching.

It is time, now, for us to choose differently. To shape a vision of an ocean with a future. To help Christine Ren Films create the next images in this series, please visit her kickstarter page at:
