James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge
Stock Footage Stereographer
As you may have heard, James Cameron took an epic journey to the bottom of the deepest part of the Mariana Trench; the Challenger Deep, almost 11km straight down.
In making a 3D documentary about the experience, his production team have sourced a number of underwater shots from the Coral Sea Expeditio n that I did in 2012. On this project I worked with Ocean Planet 3D as the underwater stereographer, making sure the shots were technically correct. It was an amazing experience; diving with minke whales, hundreds of sharks, moray eels and potato cod on one of Australia's most pristine reefs. You can read more about it here .
James Cameron's Deep Sea Challenge 3D is being made in partnership with National Geographic and you can find out much more about the project at their website http://deepseachallenge.com/. You'll see one of my shark shots in the trailer (if you don't blink) at 2:16.
