The following videovignette was produced by International documentary film Producer, Gerard Ungerman, as part of his series of journeys across the US to interview unique individuals who are striving to improve the world...each in their own way. He is in the process of creating a string of interconnected videos which he has termed "The Respectful Revolution." Gerard comments as follows on his interview with Dr. Maynard: "Living amidst the stunning scenic of Sedona, AZ, Dr. Elliott Maynard is the embodiment of a beautiful mind constantly in search for truth, wisdom, playful creative expression and cutting-edge solutions for our troubled world. A marine biologist by formation, an artist for pleasure and a so-called “futurist” by vocation, Elliott also likes to dub himself a 'data-miner'. Connected with several international scientific circles, Elliott constantly researches innovative, often off-beat technological solutions in order to address such diverse issues as coral reef restoration, or nuclear waste management. An author, he also uses his many speaking and networking opportunities to disseminate information and connect with artists and scientists he feels can help remedy what he calls our collective case of “environmental amnesia.” SEE VIDEO
