Hard Tellin,' A New Series Available for Viewin'
The Maine Coast Fishermen's Association (MCFA) has been working over the past year with Knack Factory, a production company based in Portland, on a series of video shorts that share stories and imagery from Maine's fishing industry and communities. The Hard Tellin' series shines a light on the importance of fishing to Maine's economy, tourism industry, culture, traditions and future.
In Hard Tellin' in the Mud, we meet a clammer from Harpswell who discusses coastal changes that are impacting the industry. That short was funded in part through CBEP's Community Grants program. In Hard Tellin' with Lexie Saxton, Lobsterman we meet a 14 year-old lobsterman in Harpswell, and in Hard Tellin' Chebeague Island we meet Alex Todd, scalloper and lobsterman.
