Seven billion human beings live on this planet today. Yet for all of our vast collective knowledge, the ocean remains a largely uncharted territory. We rely on it for food, transportation, and minerals, but do we really understand it?
From the formation of earth’s ocean to future preservation, Planet Ocean, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment, aims to shed a little light on our planet’s main waterways. Planet Ocean was the official cinematography winner at the Blue Ocean Film Festival. Yann Arthus-Bertrand, Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environment Program, also presented it to the leaders of Rio+20 conference in June 2012.
Narrated by Josh Duhamel and directed by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and Michael Pitiot, Planet Ocean is a visually stunning trip across the oceans. From the smallest plankton to the biggest whale, Planet Ocean’s cinematography makes you feel like you’re right there with the underwater camera crew.
