national park


in 2017, together with a team of scientists, divers and filmmakers, the watermen project team embarked on a quest to study Indonesia’s iconic manta rays and komodo dragons, and how plastic pollution is threatening their survival. Their underwater skills allowed them to capture this adventure in virtual reality and to produce an 18-min feature vr film that takes viewers on an immersive journey into unesco world heritage site komodo national park. the film is a watermen project, vr gorilla and blend 360 media collaboration. This project would not have existed were it not for dr. andrea marshall from the marine megafauna foundation and her generous donor who put their boat at the service of the oceans in this project.

the film will be a key component of the watermen project’s efforts to engage young individuals in ocean conservation through targeted education.
