Tanna also founded the Iowa Independ-


ent Film Festival, which continues to grow each year in her hometown of Mason City called Project Cornlight. She is dedicated to expanding Iowa’s burgeon- ing film industry by showcasing the talent of the state’s filmmakers, writers and actors by providing the opportu- nity for them to work with and learn from Holly- wood pro- fessionals. Project Cornlight’s first film, The Farm, is currently in production and stars Frederick and fellow native Iowan Joel West. Though Frederick maintains strong ties to her home state, she discovered a love of surfing in California and has become a passionate advocate for ocean conservation, founding Project Save Our Surf, a non-profit organization that has ex- panded in its four years to raise funds for ocean and freshwater conservation as well as for clean drinking water initiatives.


“I founded the non-profit Project Save


Our Surf, www.projectsaveoursurf.com, which works for clean oceans and water


initiatives globally and locally, with leg- endary surfer Shaun Tomson. This


summer there were over 500 underprivi- leged children sent to a week


long camp with scholarship


funds raised by our organiza-


tion. The kids went to the


camp at Inside


the Outdoors in Irvine, where


they interacted with their


en-


vironment with hands on


experiments


and games and incredible


counselors as their inspira-


tions. A lot of these children live in the


greater LA area and had never even seen the ocean before. I


remember when three kids and I were holding a


thing real?”

to be educated about the importance of conservation through a program where they are having fun and making memo-


ries that will last a lifetime is a powerful teaching mechanism.”
