The Merrimack: River at Risk – film to debut this summer.

Tidal creek as it flows into the Merrimack River near its mouth in Newburyport and Salisbury, Massachusetts.

I had been planning to announce a premier date for our Merrimack film around now, but we’ve obviously had to delay screening the film due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We’re waiting to see how this all plays out, but we’re hoping to screen the film this summer (update: the film will have its broadcast premier on NHPBS on July 23rd.) I just hope our local theaters make it through this challenging time and we are all able to return to doing the things we love like going to the movies.

In a scene from The Merrimack: River at Risk, Leah Hart gets a tour of the Coca Cola bottling plant from plant manager Russ Bruner in Londonderry, New Hampshire.

Editing a film is actually a fairly nice project to have right now. Mud season is typically a slow time for me as far as shooting goes, and since I’m practicing some self-isolation,working on the film is keeping my brain active.
