The Seattle-based Destination went down without a mayday call on February 11, 2017, stunning a Bering Sea crabbing industry that appeared to have left its deadly legacy behind. A former crewman is haunted by what may have gone wrong in the sinking that killed his brother and five others.
I worked with intrepid reporter Hal Bernton on this story to create a dynamic visual presentation using archive video and images and directed, filmed and edited a short doc about Dylan Hatfield and the Destination crew.
