We knew it: There is something going on in the oceans of planet Earth… THE UNDERWATER REALM tells the story of five times throughout history that humanity has caught a glimpse of the survivors who still live on the ocean floor.
Created by a fully volunteer team, THE UNDERWATER REALM is arguably the most ambitious independent film project ever attempted. Made for less than half of the coffee budget for Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT*, the team has recreated five different time periods, developed their own underwater lighting and speaker systems, and built a life size, fully rocking gun deck of a Spanish Galleon. The team have trained and worked with some of Britain’s top SCUBA and free diving experts in order to bring this ambitious project to reality.
Every step of the production has been documented via a weekly video blog, followed by the project’s thousands of backers worldwide. THE UNDERWATER REALM is helmed by acclaimed independent filmmaker David M Reynolds, following on from his success with the award winning ZOMBLIES. ZOMBLIES has so far been watched by over four million viewers on YouTube, and attracted many influential fans, including Sir Richard Taylor, Head of WETA Workshop. Sir Richard memorably described the film as “Bloody fantastic, beautifully shot, truly suspenseful — great zombies!”
‘An indie film that looks like a blockbuster.’ Scott Beggs, Film School Rejects
