HOUSTON, Sept. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It has been 6 years since the Deepwater Horizon disappeared into history with the tragic deaths of 11 crew members. In all that time, the majority of crew members onboard the Deepwater Horizon have remained silent about the event and their lives on board.
They are now breaking their silence. Recently, an announcement from Houston owned Contechnix LLC, indicates that 5 key members from Deepwater Horizon's 115 surviving crew will be featured in an upcoming documentary.
Contechnix has contracted Henderson Enterprises, also of Houston, to assist in the production groundwork for the documentary project to be called "Our Horizon".
According to the announcement, Deepwater Horizon crew members are not only willing to describe the events from April 20, 2010 from up close and personal, but also are wanting to tell stories of crew camaraderie and friendships that made the Horizon "Best in Class" for years.
The documentary's intentions are to also share personal pictures and video footage never before seen by the public. One of the things Contechnix says it will focus on in the documentary is to dispel some of the rumors and false information that has plagued the Horizon tragedy since the beginning.
Contechnix mentioned that other crew mates have come forward with their stories before the incident and a complementary book will follow the documentary. Although no release date was given, Contechnix says the book will be called "Our Horizon: In The Moment".
Contechnix is seeking public funding for the project by starting a GoFundMe campaign. They are using social and conventional media to spread the word of the campaign as well as looking for investors willing to fund portions or the entire project.
More information is expected to be released as the project funding milestones are completed.
Contechnix LLC is a limited liability consulting company founded in 2014. Owned and operated by Greg Williams, former crew mate aboard the Deepwater Horizon. Its goal is to share with the world the true, unembellished story of the Deepwater Horizon.
