The exhibit of El Galeon (now in Alexandria VA for Memorial Day weekend) accompanies the development of a new film “Galleon” (there is one “L” in Spanish). This is apparently a film (“Galleon”, from Bleecker Street) about the 16th century Spanish explorer ship which was reconstructed in St. Augustine, FL.
Mark Moorer, screenwriter, presents the ship in this video. I wonder what it would be like to be hired to write this kind of script.
The exhibit in Alexandria showed a 20-minute short film (from “NOA”) on the construction of the replica ship, mostly with basic carpentry skills and tools, called “Galleon Andalucia”. The film was shown in the lowest level f the ship. You learn how rope is made from the sisal plant.
There was also drone video of the ship, taken from across the Potomac over Fort Washington, MD.
