Technology Meets Nature
Employing the latest in digital technology, Hidden Pacific will transport audiences around the globe and into the vibrant world of America's Marine National Monuments. Directed by award-winning filmmaker, photographer, and conservationist Ian Shive, Hidden Pacific is a pioneering film profiling the Pacific Ocean’s protected and remote national wildlife refuge islands and marine national monuments. Filmed with stunning 6K and 8K digital cinema cameras, audiences will have the opportunity to experience these public lands from the sky, on land, and deep underwater.
Capturing these incredible stories was only half the fun of putting Hidden Pacific together. After six months of shooting on four different remote islands we began the challenging process of sorting through more than 130 hours of footage. The film truly comes to life in post production as we combine the beautiful original score by Cody Westheimer (Journey to Space IMAX) with the storytelling of editor Ian Maliniak (Midway: Edge of Tomorrow) and a fantastic array of nature sounds captured in these pristine environments.
