FRACK! New documentary puts controversial gas "fracking" technology under the spotlight
FRACK! New documentary puts controversial gas "fracking" technology  under the spotlight

Frack! tells the story of the unconventional gas-drilling ("fracking") frenzy sweeping the Marcellus region, including the Catskills and Upper Delaware River watershed, threatening pristine areas which provide clean drinking water for over 15 million people.  Without a massive public outcry, once idyllic rural landscapes could become toxic industrial wastelands, and New York State a gas extraction colony.

About the director...
David is a filmmaker who has worked on documentaries overseas in Africa and Asia for the BBC, directed a health-care doc for PBS, and has produced and directed several narrative ( L.A. film festival award winner Reel to Real) and documentary short films, including one on the health of rivers and streams in the Catskills, produced in 2008.  He is co-founder of DTVMusic, which provides non-commercial music-video channels for hospitals, including the VA, and is co-founder of low-power radio stations in the northeast, including WXGR-FM. David is also a web designer and developer, winning multiple awards for work on hundreds of websites (Segway, Williams-Sonoma). He is composer and sound designer for several features (Fear House) in the (gasp!) horror genre. Frack! combines his love for the region with a sense of what true horror is—takeover and destruction by the fossil-fuel industry. David earned his BA from Cal-Berkeley ('93).
