LOS ANGELES - Nov. 28, 2013 - PRLog -- “Extinction Soup” follows documentary filmmaker Philip Waller on his quest for adventure as he sets out to tell the story of his larger-than-life friend and extreme sports legend, Jimmy Hall.  The film quickly takes a surprise turn when Waller finds himself consumed with exposing to the world an environmental catastrophe in the making – the extinction of the oceans’ shark population through the mass slaughter of these magnificent animals for their fins.  Waller documents the efforts of conservationist Stefanie Brendl as she fights to educate lawmakers and help pass ground-breaking legislation that will curb the consumption of shark fin soup, considered a delicacy in many Eastern cultures, and the impetus behind 70 million sharks being killed per year.  Brendl founded the non-profit Shark Allies to find creative and effective ways to protect sharks, to limit the trade of shark fins and eventually to bring a stop to shark fin soup.

Now in post-production, the filmmakers hope to premiere the film in the summer of 2014.  Financing for post is being secured via the Producers, and through backers at

"Extinction Soup" is a Sea to Sky Production that is written & directed by Philip Waller, Executive Produced by Stefanie Brendl, Produced by Sidney Sherman, David Irvin, and Waller, and co-produced by Travis Aaron Wade.  The filmmakers are aiming for international film festivals like Slamdance, Berlin, Cannes, Toronto, as well as distribution via the world wide web.
