Ocean Life and Nature Film – Amazing Undersea
Underwater World is a full-length documentary film that tells the stories of some of the most unique and beautiful places in the world. Shot in an underwater environment in the Pacific, this film will reveal the lives and culture of the sea creatures that call the underwater world their home. Although you may think that it is just a fish film, there is more to this. Many people have found this to be a great education film as well as a romantic viewing experience. The images shown are truly astonishing.
Underwater World is produced by award winning director J. Stephen Lanning. For years, he has been fascinated by the mysterious and wonderful world of the ocean. As a child, he would spend hours researching the natural world and the animals and plants that lived there. In his adulthood, he went on to teach marine biology, and have worked extensively in the field of astronomy and the marine biology industry. Now, with his expert eye and knowledge, he brings his passion for the underwater world to the big screen.
Produced on a budget of just forty thousand dollars, Underwater World is the true tale of a friendship forged between a diver and an elusive diver. Diving with a beautiful and mysterious specimen, David Brinkmann (James Patterson) uncovers the mystery of the sea’s amazing biodiversity. But the beauty of the film isn’t contained within the ocean’s depths. Capturing the beauty of the shore-side ecosystem, the film also takes us deep down into the undersea world where the creatures and plants can be seen by the human eye.
The storyline is very simple: David is hired by a research vessel to recover samples of strange alien life from waters around Hawaii
The samples prove to contain the first xenobiology – the study of life forms under the ocean surface. Although the specimen is non-functional, and its biological properties are too confusing for a scientist to study, David has other ideas. With help from other diver buddies, he begins to investigate the sample, and digs deeper into what is beneath the water.
As he digs further, he uncovers a huge secret – strange fish are living in the tank of the sample. Though these fish do not resemble any type of fish that you and your friends have seen before, it is the beauty of their colors, texture, and behavior that completely takes David by surprise – until he feels something tugging on his suit! Soon, David is transformed from a trusting and gentle amateur to an adventurous and determined marine biologist.
As the film progresses, you learn more about the strange fish. We learn that they are not fish at all, but an advanced form of marine flatfish called cephalopods. Cephalopods are known for their ability to change both their color and the way that their bodies move, thanks to the lighting that they are able to generate. The beauty of this fish’s movement, however, is that they cannot swim through the ocean alone; they must have a means of moving with other fish in their environment. That is why they often live in schools. And what makes them even better at navigating the complex underwater ecosystem that they find themselves in is their ability to “talk” to one another.
When David’s son returns home from his own adventures, he also brings with him a new friend: Kona
These two men – and many other sea creatures – become part of David’s quest to find the perfect fish for his film. What is so fascinating about this story is that it is based on real-life research. Several years ago, Dr. David Suzuki, a renowned marine biologist, conducted an experiment in an effort to determine if fish could “feel” their environment. His hypothesis was based on the idea that if a fish wanted to go somewhere, it would make “chirps” and his theory was proven correct. Through the use of special cameras and sonar, Dr. Suzuki was able to capture images of fish displaying behaviors that truly appeared to be undersea creatures.
Ocean Life and Nature film – amazing undersea is a fascinating glimpse of some of the most unique aquatic life on Earth. Through the use of sophisticated equipment, Dr. Suzuki was able to capture images of fish that were a great distance away from their home aquarium – in a process that truly appeared to be moving underwater. This film will not only provide audiences with an up-close look at some of the most incredible animals and plants on Earth, but it will also provide a unique educational experience as well. Its goal is to educate people about how beautiful nature is beneath the sea and how we can benefit by learning more about it.
