Ms. Katz returned to her childhood state of Maine to film MOOSEHEAD’S WICKED GOOD PLAN, for her FA in Film and Electronic Media at American University. Like many residents of the Eastern Shore who are concerned about over development here, Ms. Katz’s film focuses on the potential environmental, social and economic impact of Plum Creek, the largest private land holder in the United States. In 2005, the Seattle based, company, proposed resort and residential development on the fragile shores of Moosehead Lake in rural inland Maine. Moosehead Lake is in the heart of the largest undeveloped forest east of the Mississippi River.

MOOSEHEAD’S WICKED GOOD PLAN is told through the eyes of five unique community members who are on different sides of the development issue. The film acts as a journey through the region with the various residents who rely heavily on the land, as the hosts. Although, the flora and fauna of the Eastern Shore are different from Maine, the consequences of overdevelopment would have the same impact on our communities.
