Bounty - The Greatest Sea Story of Them All

Pilot Light President Geoff D’Eon is now a published author, with the Fall 2018 release of his first book. It covers both the original eighteenth century ship HMAV Bounty on which the most infamous mutiny in the history of the British Navy played out; and also the replica of Bounty built in Nova Scotia in 1960 to meet the demands of MGM’s blockbuster movie Mutiny On The Bounty. The Lunenburg-built Bounty went on to have a colourful 50 year career before sinking in Hurricane Sandy in 2012, with loss of life. The book was commissioned by Formac Publishing following the success off the award-winning documentary Bounty - Into The Hurricane. The book is available in all major Canadian bookstores, and on Amazon. In 2019 it will be distributed in the USA and the United Kingdom.

Other documentary projects in research and pre-development phase.
Details to be announced soon.
