The non-profit production company behind Oscar-winner The Cove, The Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS), is offering supporters the opportunity to have their names in the credits of their upcoming 3D documentary, The Singing Planet in exchange for a donation to the funding of the film. For one month, from December 1 to January 1, people that make donations of either $5,000 or $1,000 will have their names in the credits of the film. The OPS says it has fundraised approximately 1/3 of the budget for The Singing Planet thus far. The film will deal with what scientists are calling the sixth mass extinction event in the earth’s history, but the first to be caused by one species – human beings.
