I recently found out about the Underwater Realm project, and got so fascinated with it that I just had to write about it here. The Underwater Realm are five short films, each telling a story about a moment in history when mankind have come into contact with a race of people living beneath the sea. The films are produced by Realm pictures, an independent production company, and set entirely underwater. The ultimate goal with these short films is to raise awareness about life in the ocean and to whip up support for a trilogy of feature films on the same subject.
Now the group at Realm pictures need your help to finish the project. Watch the movie clip above and the UWR video blog to find out more about the project. Also, make sure to check out their kickstarter campaign, and help with funding for the project. They have created a lot of really cool givebacks for those supporting the project.
So what does this have to do with scuba diving you ask? Well apart from the fun I take of watching (almost) any movie taking place under water, the team at Realm are also developing new tools for filming under water. Stuff that one day might be useful for you and me.
