pandemic strands 100,000 mariners at sea

An estimated 100,000 mariners were stranded at sea due to covid when I produced this video in late March 2021. I was interested in doing as many of the interviews as possible while the sailors were actually aboard the merchant vessels.

While talking to two captains stranded at sea, I decided to do some interviews over Zoom from their vessel, and we agreed they would self-film some details of their life for me.

This edit was picked up by several media outlets, including the edit below from VOA. This is the text story from Reuters that I wrote to go together with the TV edit. My edit on the wire here.
