Creation Works Documentary: The Mt. Novarupta Eruption of 1912

I've added a new link under "Creationism" on the right nav-bar.  Creation Works have a nice documentary in the works that explores the impact of the 1912 Alaskan volcanic eruption.  Mt. Novarupta blew past Mount St. Helen's material output (pun intended), and, just like that latter eruption, it provides us with a microcosm the destructive ability of the global deluge in the book of Genesis.  Here's the trailer:


The catch?  They're looking for support, but you don't have to be a big spender to help - there's a $1 minimum pledge, and $10 can secure you a digital version of the documentary.  Their goal is only $5,500 by July 20.  Here's more detail on the documentary from their site:

On June 6, 1912, the biggest eruption in over one hundred years occurred in what is now Katmai National Park, and The Valley of Ten Thousand Smokes in Alaska. Ejecting over thirty times more material than Mount St. Helen’s, Novarupta exploded for more than sixty hours. 
Catastrophic processes consistent with Biblical history are clearly revealed in the story of Novarupta. The volcano deposited ash and tephra at rates exceeding 10 feet per hour, dropped worldwide temperatures up to 2 °F, caused large parts of mountains to disappear in the blink of an eye, plus a host of other cataclysmic events. Novarupta provides many challenges to the uniformitarian assumption that normal everyday processes are responsible for Earth's surface features. It is a powerful testimony to the young and active planet we live on, a planet shaped by the hand of God as revealed in Scripture.  
This video documentary will tell the story of Dr. David Shormann and a team of explorers that have traveled to the volcano to show the evidence that is in harmony with the Scriptures. The video will provide a powerful apologetic for the skeptic, and build the faith of the believer. 
Our goal is to enter the production into the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival (www.saicff.org), February 2013, and then distribute the DVD as widely as possible. 
The production will be written and produced by a group of young film-makers. As a backer of this project, you’ll be partnering with us to bring evidence that is in harmony with God’s Word – and help young adults to learn the art of making video documentaries with an eternal message!
