“Although still at local theaters on the big screen, Fin and Fur Productions along with the generous support from James and Tammy King and others have arranged for PACT to present this amazing film,” said a press release from the PACT.
The film’s website offered a synopsis:
“Told through the eyes of wildlife species ranging from the mysterious blind catfish to the elusive mountain lion, the story follows our ever-changing relationship with the natural world and showcases our ability to destroy, conserve and recover wildlife and the habitat we mutually depend on.
“Narrated by Matthew McConaughey and featuring state-of-the-art cinematography, this family-friendly film journeys from the highest peaks in West Texas, through our aquifers, rivers, and bays and deep into the Gulf of Mexico.
“Deep in the Heart” aims to conserve our remaining wild places, to show the connectivity of water and wildlife, and to recognize Texas’ conservation importance on a continental scale.”
The dolphin, redfish and marlin sequences in the film were shot in the Port Aransas area.
The production team includes director and writer Ben Masters, who is best known for feature-length documentaries.
Austin-based film producer, writer and graphic artist Katy Baldock is a co-producer along with Jay Kleberg. Kleberg previously served as associate director and director of conservation initiatives for Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation, among his other accomplishments.
The director of photography is Skip Hobbie, editor is Sam Klatt and original music is by Noah Sorota.
The PACT is located at 2327 State Highway 361.
