    Warmer Weather Good News for Snook!

    Warmer Weather Good News for Snook!

    As the cold weather has gripped most of the country, even sunny, subtropical Sanibel Island experienced record low temperatures. Local fish suffered major losses due to unusually cold water. Schools of Snook found refuge in many of the warmer canals and waterways. Shocked by the extreme cold, fish seemed to be in a catatonic state as they swam in what appeared to be slow motion. In this state, the fish will eventually starve to death.

    A Rainy Luminary Night

    Sanibel Real Estate
    "Rain - Rain - Go - Away" was expressed island wide as Sanibel's Luminary Night was rained out for the first time in more than 25 years. Despite all the rain, many businesses remained committed to their evening plans as locals and visitors ventured out in their ponchos to brave the downpour. It is estimated that the island received 3 to 4 inches of rain in 24 hours. For those who braved the weather, it was a memorable yet soggy evening!

    "Sandbars to Sanibel" Filming on Location

    Sanibel homes for sale
    As the film maker, my original vision for this film “Sandbars to Sanibel” was to be shot in sepia, with the intro and ending to be in color, similar to The Wizard of OZ. However, after shooting the first scene in the authentic wooden walled post office I could not bring myself to remove the deep and saturated tones of color from this film. The preserved interior of each historic building, one after the other, revealed a magical aura of dreamlike reds, yellows and browns. Add to that the time-era wardrobe and the intense commitment by each actor to participate at 100%; I was completely satisfied to have chosen to shoot this film 24 frames a second, a film-like look. This project has by far been my favorite edit scenario.
