Jewels of the Caribbean Sea
Delving deep into the tropical waters of the Caribbean Sea, this Emmy award-winning production celebrates the region’s bountiful life and impressive diversity. World-famous marine photographers Howard and Michele Hall explore this vast underwater world, their stunning cinematography bringing to light both the area’s radiant beauty, and that of its abundant wildlife population.
From microscopic bacteria to mammoth manta rays, the couple used revolutionary underwater filming techniques to detail the tireless struggle for life in the vast and colourful coral cities. Using complex military rebreathers, Howard remained submerged for prolonged periods, capturing behaviour never before filmed. Baby sperm whales romp near the surface, barracudas prowl the murky depths and reef squid indulge in ritualistic visual combat.
An outstanding example of the couple’s adventurous filmmaking style, which Partridge Films’ founder, Mike Rosenburg described as “brilliant and intelligent”, Jewels of the Caribbean Sea is an intriguing insight into a fascinating underwater community.
