THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SCIENTIFIC CETACEAN DOCUMENTARY
An unprecedented “in collaboration” 57 minutes film documentary
targeting an international audience
A “behind the scenes” of 25 minutes and future ocean series.
The film uses the best images, primarily unpublished, from the world’s best marine photographers and filmmakers. We aim at showing the largest diversity of cetaceans ever presented on screen. We use drone footage, on-top and underwater; we have on camera celebrities and best scientists.
5 main themes will be developed within the film, including:
Together for life
Names given by mothers
Human interaction & Final message.
Clicks and vocalizations
Brain size and complexity
Recognise and curious.
Ocean Souls (OS) is a non-profit effort - all exec-producers came forward to support this unprecedented documentary film in an altruistic way. The production was financed via Wildlife Media (www.wildlifemedia.org ), a 501 (c3) non-for-profit US organisation
Ocean Souls will be presented to most nature film festivals, we also aim at discussing broadcasting via traditional TV channels around the world and large social media channels.
If the film or future series ever produces a profit, the money will go to the Wildlife Media Org and then to promote Ocean Conservation. Our goal is awareness and impact rather than profit, so we aim at huge broadcasting and global strong social media coverage. At present Social Media followers for the entire team behind Ocean Souls, sponsors, partners and from contributors has reached many million, in a way the reach is already guaranteed. We expect multiple channels to repost our film and future episodes. We will also coordinate translation into multiple languages.
