"Of Shark and Man" Promo Teaser Trailer!
I've been a little quiet on here the last three weeks and there's been a very good reason for that.
On Saturday I screened a special promo teaser trailer for "Of Shark and Man" at the Bite-Back Charity Ball, an annual event run by the excellent Bite-Back shark conservation group, an organisation I support, run by some fantastic people with a real commitment to shark conservation so it was a pleasure to be involved and give the attendees a sneak preview of what to expect from "Of Shark and Man."
This year's event was sponsored by Fiji Me and the guests were made up of members of the media and dive community and was also attended by the acting High Commissioner for Fiji and his wife and like all Fijians, they were a joy to spend time with.
The deadline I had was almost impossible to hit but I managed it...Just! The trailer was finished at 3am on Friday morning and I was up to catch a train at 5.30am, the obligatory technical problems of editing HD video on a laptop using software that often doesn't work properly meant I was unable to avoid "squeaky bum time" but I just about managed it. It is by no means perfect however, it gives the first full concept of what you as a viewer can expect from the finished film.
You wanna see the world's biggest Bull sharks in the kind of numbers you won't see anywhere else? You want a totally different perspective on shark conservation? You want a bit of drama? You'll find it all here.
However, there's a catch. This isn't for public consumption so you won't find it anywhere, even on this blog, no embedding, no facebook, no file sharing, nowhere, so how do you get to see it? Easy...
Sign up to the mailing list at www.officetoocean.com just below the "Behind Blue Glass" trailer. There is no spamming, no data collection or any of that nonsense, just updates on this film and future projects so if you want to see it, sign up, it takes sixty seconds. The trailer is hosted privately so you can't see it without a link or a password, this info will be sent out on Monday October 3rd to everyone on the mailing list.
The trailer lasts four minutes and nine seconds and I think you'd agree the leap in quality from previous projects is quite obvious, as for the shark footage, that kinda speaks for itself, Beqa Lagoon is head and shoulders above anywhere else in the world for Bull Sharks and it shows.
Spread the word, get your friends to sign up, things are just about to get exciting...
I will also have "Making it Happen part 4" coming soon, along with news about "Behind Blue Glass" so keep checking back!
As always, I welcome your comments, don't be shy and let me know what you think!
