Two movies by Mantis and Moon film production company, owned by Cap Averill II of Sylvania, have been approved for national distribution on Public Broadcasting Stations.
The approval, by the National Educational Telecommunications Association, is for association members, such as numerous PBS stations throughout the country. That means the movies will play to a wider audience.
Approved for Mantis and Moon were Thunder on the Mountain in the Thunder Series, as well as the financial documentary, Wants and Needs. The original Thunder Series project, Thunder on the Farm, was resubmitted after a previous run and was also accepted.
The Mantis and Moon's Thunder Series depicts the symbiotic balance between man and the environment. Wants and Needs is about a five-year financial study on cyclical recession and depressions.
The National Educational Telecommunications Association serves public television licensees and educational entities across the country. WGTE-TV’s Darren LaShelle was supportive of the approval of the local movies.
