The sea, a great and green wilderness, eerie and luminous, a sunken kingdom of caverns and castles, of weed and spikes and sponges, and of the most exotic, bizarre, and enchanting creatures. Yet the sea does not reveal its treasures easily. Pawel Achtel spent over two years filming this remarkable documentary at ocen reefs around the Australian coastline, using special lighting and camera techniques to illuminate the captivating beauty of the Aliens of the Sea. The perfect planes of the gliding Manta Ray, the rare and playful Australian Sea Lion, the respectable steely shark, the unique Sea Dragon, the dazzling colours of living coral. And unlike most underwater films, all of these remarkable species were filmed in their natural habitat. The result is a triumph of colour and spectacle - the ultimate in underwater footage combines with a rich, melodic soundtrack in a sensory assault that washes over in waves. This is the sea as you have never experienced it before.
