Like Winged Migration and Microcosmos, Deep Blue is a big-screen nature documentary patiently filmed over a period of years. As Winged Migration concentrated on the creatures of the air, so Deep Blue focuses on creatures of the sea.
Deep Blue is a major documentary feature film shot by the BBC Natural History Unit. It is the same team, together with Discovery, that produced the acclaimed BBC series “The Blue Planet”. An epic cinematic rollercoaster ride for all ages. Deep Blue uses amazing footage to tell the story of our oceans and the life they support.
Even though the sea constitutes two-thirds of our planet, we know more about the surface of the moon than we do about the deep oceans. From the vast open stretches of the ocean to the deepest chasms, Deep Blue reveals the sea and its communities at their most enchanting, alluring and fierce.
Directors Alastair Fothergill and Andy Byatt assembled 20 specialized camera teams, shot over 7000 hours of footage in more than 200 locations around the world for more than 5 years, and descended as far as 5,000 meters in the most powerful submersible crafts. New species of ocean dwellers were discovered, and many filmed for the first time ever.
Released in 2003. Directors: Andy Byatt, Alastair Fothergill. Writer: David Attenborough. Documentary film.
