Long Beach Wants You Safe
A 10-Minute Public Safety Docudrama
Watch News 12 Long Island.
Excerpts from a Long Beach Patch article regarding our docu-drama, "The City of Long Beach Wants You ... Safe" produced by Liz Byrne of Vision One, written and directed by David E. Feldman of eFace media and Vessel Films.
In the unfortunate wake of several drowning and rescue incidents in Long Beach waters this past summer, local filmmakers Dave Feldman and Liz Byrne recently completed principal photography for a public service announcement that aims to raise awareness about the dangers of swimming off the city's shores.
The $10,000 production, which will see post-production completion and distribution in coming months, was a collaboration between Feldman's eFace Media and Byrne's Vision of One production companies, with cooperation from Long Beach City Manager Charles Theofan and Long Beach's lifeguards and fire and police departments. Extras include local residents who act as police detectives, parents of a drowning victim, school children and other beach-goers.
"Perhaps the biggest star of the film was the beach itself," Feldman said.
The documentary dramatizes Long Beach lifeguards taking to the water off National Boulevard beach in an effort to recover a young swimmer caught in the ocean's rip currents while friends watch from the beach. The film will also highlight lifeguard's instructions on how to calmly and safely swim ashore.
