"The Sea, once it casts it spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever." Jacques-Yves Cousteau
Misfit pictures welcomes all ocean lovers to join us in the creation of our next film WHAT THE SEA GIVES ME, a stunningly beautiful portrayal of the seemingly inexplicable relationship between ourselves and the sea.
Our film highlights individuals whose lives and destinies are defined by their connection to the ocean. Whether it be the extremely dangerous researching of Great White sharks, diving to depths never before reached, surfing death-defying mountains of water or humbly feeding your family from the day's catch - all of us are invisibly linked to the ocean in one form or another.
If you are still reading, I guess you know exactly what I am talking about.
But here's a little more.
WHAT THE SEA GIVES ME is a feature length documentary comprised of intimate and candid interviews with some of the ocean's most extraordinary ambassadors.
We will give you an honest and personal look through the eyes of those who thrive under the most extreme water conditions, those ensuring the proper care of the oceans for future generations and those who simply derive a sense of pure joy from the sea.
Proposed interviews include Great White shark researcher Brett McBride, artist Matt Beard, photographer Chris Burkard, bodysurfer Angie Oschmann, conservationist Jean-Michelle Cousteau, free-diver Herbert Nitsch, oceanographer Walter Munk and many others.
In addition to riveting personal interviews, we are filming in spectacular above-and-below-the-water locations around the world (South Africa, Greece, Fiji, Australia, Ireland, New England, California, and Hawaii) to display the natural beauty of the oceans.
The goal of WHAT THE SEA GIVES ME is to raise ocean awareness on a global level while reminding the viewer how closely we are all connected to the sea; and, to introduce you to an unique group of people we find absolutely captivating.
