Over the past year SDX and our team have been involved in some very exciting productions scheduled for release this year. Although we cannot give away too many plot details we can give you a small taster of what to look out for during this years annual shark week broadcasts and more.
Shark - BBC, May 2015
BBC Shark was broadcast in the UK in May this year to highly critical acclaim and is scheduled for international release later in the year. This mini series produced by the BBC Natural history unit highlighting over 30 species and was filmed in multiple locations in over 3 years. As well as being involved with the great white hunt sequence filmed in South Africa, our team worked as advisors and logistics for the Guadalupe Island production team during filming in 2013. To be part of such a groundbreaking and beautifully shot series was a huge privilege and we look forward to working together with the team again on future productions in the pipeline…
Return of the GW serial killer - Discovery Channel Shark Week, August 2015
A direct follow up to the acclaimed “Great white serial killer” production aired during shark weeks’ 2013 schedule. Return of the serial killer sees TV presenter Brandon McMillan team up with Ralph Collier of the Shark Research Committee, Edgar Becceril (one of Guadalupe’s’ leading biologists) and Jimi Partington of SDX. The mission – to find a link between shark attacks along the Californian coastline and the Guadalupe Island shark population. During the shoot last year, our team helped film some very exciting segments and uncovered some fascinating mysteries.
Island of the Mega shark - Discovery Channel Shark Week, August 2015
Another Discovery channel production filmed with us during 2014, due to be aired this year is the follow up to “Lair of the Mega shark.” Producer Jeff Kurr and Cameraman Andy Casagrande team up once again this time with Dickie Chivell of Shark Cage Diving in South Africa to search for and film some of the largest great white sharks on the planet today. With the aid of our team and multiple gadgets and experiments we managed to film some enormous sharks on this production including many of our regular sharks seen at the island come late November.
