Filmmakers The Jetlagged have teamed up with global alliance Plastic Pollution Coalition to release “Sea Plastic,” a beautiful and powerful virtual reality film illustrating the plastic pollution crisis.
Narrated by Oscar-winning actor, producer, activist, and Plastic Pollution Coalition Notable Member, Tim Robbins, the film takes viewers on a journey through polluted beaches, a river of plastic, under the surface of the ocean, and even into an overflowing and burning landfill. Stunning footage is combined with actions each of us can take to work together to stop plastic pollution.
The ocean still is the biggest mystery of our planet. With an average depth of 4 kilometers, most of its secrets are hidden in the deep where humans can't survive. Average scuba divers may explore the first 30 meters of it – but some people are pushing the boundaries and are stretching physical laws to venture deeper. One of them is Philip Christoff, technical diving instructor at Manta Dive Gili Trawangan and Fourth Element team diver. Technical diving makes it possible to get to places that ordinary divers do not even dream of.
In this film, Phil (@christoff_ccr) tells us what motivates him to explore the deep.
Check out The Jetlagged’s first 360/VR experience, produced in cooperation with ZMT Leibniz Center for Tropical Marine Research.
Join us on a journey through the Coral Triangle and its magnificent coral reefs.
But as the planet keeps warming, our oceans are changing. Coral bleaching, ocean acidification, overfishing and pollution are threatening the world’s coral reefs and their fragile ecosystems.
Our oceans and its reefs must be protected now for the benefit of future generations and the health of our blue planet.
In their first full-length documentary, The Jetlagged accompany manta ray researcher Elitza Germanov (Marine Megafauna Foundation) on a field trip in Komodo in Indonesia. Manta ray numbers are declining because their gills have recently become a dubious trend in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Numerous conservation efforts are taking place to protect the gentle ocean giants, including “Citizen Science” projects to identify individuals by their unique spot patterns on their bellies. The filmmakers document the efforts of scientists and conservationists in Indonesia like Elitza Germanov and Sarah Lewis (Indonesian Manta Project/Manta Trust), who are working tirelessly to save these beautiful animals from extinction.
The Jetlagged are award-winning underwater, nature and wildlife filmmakers and passionate for the protection of our ocean. While Hendrik enjoys combining his professional education as director and filmmaker with his passion for the ocean, Claudia builds on her background in media production and quickly developed into an avid underwater videographer, one of the few females in the industry.
The Jetlagged create powerful films about the underwater world from the polar circle to the equator. We use our cameras to film pristine underwater worlds and vulnerable marine species to raise awareness about the fragility of the oceans and the importance for our planet.
With 360° VR films, we have found another way of bringing the ocean even closer to the people: we create virtual experience which totally immerse the viewer in the underwater environment - and give them a feeling of actually being there. Thus, virtual reality is a powerful tool for environmental conservation.
