Big Ship Films, LLC was established under the guidance of Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning writer-producer Mark B. Perry, who founded the company for the production of the one-hour documentary film, SS United States: Lady in Waiting in 2007. Directed by noted television, feature, and documentary director Robert Radler, the film has been credited with helping to raise awareness on behalf of the ship's current stewards, the SS United States Conservancy, a 501(c)3 non-profit historical advocacy organization that has worked to save the SS United States for future generations. We like to believe we played some small role in literally keeping the ship afloat for the past decade.
