    1. Hi David,
      I’m hoping to get it done this summer. I’ve been set back a little trying to come up with the money for music licenses but I think I’ll have everything secured in time to release it in the next 6 weeks. Thanks for your interest!

  1. Colin, Would love to help if I can, I have been going to the Exuma’s since the mid-1970’s and I admire your efforts to show the whole world the incredible beauty
    of the Exuma islands.
    Really looking forward to the release of your film,

  2. Thanks for the kind words and offer to help. Remaining music licenses and DVD manufacturing costs are the main obstacle at this point. Any money people want to contribute through the “Support” button on the film’s web page is always welcome! Simply spreading the word and buying a copy of the DVD would be a great way to support the project though. Thanks again! You can also stay up to date on the release date by signing up for the newsletter. I send mail very infrequently and never, ever share anyone’s address.

  3. Hi Colin! My sisters and I are heirs to a lot on Grand Exuma Sound following the death of my father. One of us has visited this lot and know MANY others own lots on Exuma. We can find no dvds actually showing this beautiful place. Some of us may never have the priveledge of seeing it. MY idea? Make a film of the actual Island …and take me with you!
    Watching your film EXUMA now! Sincerely, Lori

      1. I paused the movie to read your reply. I am SO GREATFUL for this vision you are giving me and I can see my Father’s vision when he purchased the lot in the 60’s. (Just before he passed away he had been a tour guide at the Aquarium of the Pacific in California). This is what he lived for but never got to see! If I come up with the money, can I call you? This is BEAUTIFUL! Thank you for all you have done! You are showing me what he wanted me to see! See you there? Lori

      2. PS. As I am watching we’re having a snow storm in Minnesota predicting 6-9 inches of snow tonight- in April! Best wishes…

      3. Dear Colin; I have recieved the news letter here in Minnesota for the Exuma Island lot owners. Have you considered asking for a little spot in that to promote your film? I can get you the address for you if you’d like. The news letter is sent out to MANY Exuma lot owners who, like me, may not have the opportunity to see it first hand. Not sure but you could ask. Let me know and I will get the address for you. Lori

        1. hi lori I spent many years in the exumas . hi born an Sampson were my favorites . I am sure your dad enjoyed . I am thinking of buying some thing in the exumas if you could send the way to subscribe to the news letter I would greatly appreciate it . my email is southernbaron@yahoo.com.. bob

          1. Hi Bob. I hope you haven’t been awaiting my reply for long. Just got it in my e-mail today. I am sorry to tell you that the newsletter only goes out to current Exuma Property Owners (not via subscription) but am happy to forward on to you, the address of the Developer of Bahama Sound who are the publishers of it. They may be able to help you with info. I will send it to you via your e-mail address. I hope I was of some help. Happy travels! Lori

      4. The music mix with your film is INCREDIBLE! Dad was big on that , too, with his own videos. I cant wait to tell others! Great job!

      5. Sorry to seem to overwhelm your site but I just have to say- this movie is GLORIOUS! You don’t need to have a Dad like I did nor own a piece of the EXUMAS to be TOTALLY enthrawled and fascinated by it! This is not just a film! It is captivaingly a work of art! It’s educational! It’s BEAUTIFUL! It’s MORE than anyone would expect! I purchased The Undersea World of Jaques Cousteau in memory of my Fathers passing. EXUMA surpasses ANYTHING I HAVE EVER SEEN! A MUST for ANYONE, of ANY AGE! Sleep well Colin! Job well done!!! Thank you for tranquility as well! Lori

  4. Hi Lori, Sorry for the delay responding. Thanks so much for all of your comments! I’m so glad that you enjoyed the film. It’s so gratifying for me to hear that people were moved by it. Thanks for taking the time to let me know. I really appreciate it and am so happy that this film had particular significance for you. If you have a minute at some point to send that address, I’ll get in touch with them and see what the possibilities are. You can also email me at ruggiero.colin@gmail.com

    Thanks again!

    1. Hi Colin. Thank you for your email address. You will find me there! Address included. I SINCERELY wish you so much success and happiness! Your newest cheerleader! Lori
