OceanFootage Adds Footage with Bite
to Superb ‘Sharks’ Collection!
OceanFootage Offers Even More Exciting and Diverse
Motion Images of Sharks from Across the Globe
Pacific Grove, CA. May 3, 2004 – Sharks are some of the ocean’s most infamous, feared, and fascinating inhabitants – and a favorite subject for many divers and ocean cinematographers alike. Now even more of the world’s most exciting, dynamic and unique footage of these creatures can be found at OceanFootage, in its newly expanded Sharks collection.
The expanded footage collection includes brand new material from highly acclaimed ocean cinematographers such as Bob Cranston, Perry Armor, Kip Evans and Rick Allen to name a few. New additions include Great Whites, Hammerhead Sharks, Galapagos Sharks, Blacktips Sharks, Blue Sharks, Mako Sharks, Leopard Sharks, Tiger Sharks, Nurse Sharks, Whale Sharks and more. The additions only further enrich a stunning collection: OceanFootage offers a varied and comprehensive collection of topside and underwater shark film and video stock footage – easily accessible via the special “Sharks” category featured on the website’s home page (browse Shark Footage Collection).
Ranging in size from the Dwarf Shark at six inches long to the majestic Whale Shark at over 40 feet in length, sharks are a diverse group that includes three hundred and seventy five separate species. The collection at OceanFootage, assembled from dozens of leading ocean cinematographers worldwide, features highly diverse species, locations and behavior that easily show what makes these creatures so fascinating. From close-up, tooth-filled lunges by the Great White as the superb predator so many associate with the film Jaws, to a placidly gliding (plankton-eating) Basking Shark, to docile Silky and Reef sharks actually being hand-fed and ‘petted’ by divers, the OceanFootage Sharks collection has it all. Captured on DV to HD video and film is a breathtakingly rich spectrum of shark behaviors, from feeding frenzies, to solitary swimmers, and everything in between. And of course, almost any cinematographer who films sharks in the wild has a favorite story or anecdote to offer, and those at OceanFootage are no exception – so the site often features tidbits and interviews with cinematographers about their experiences, as well.
Sharks are actually beloved of many divers and cinematographers as subjects for their grace and elegance of movement, yet are still often unjustly maligned as killers in popular culture. Out of the 375 known species of the animal, only a few are known to attack man, and out of those few only a handful of attacks occur worldwide each year – statistically, it’s more likely to be hit by lightning than to be attacked by a shark.
"Sharks are definitely one of our most requested subjects, so we’re delighted to be able to expand our collection,” comments OceanFootage founder and president Dan Baron. “They’re popular components of everything from a national ad campaign, to feature films, TV documentaries and educational exhibits. By grouping Shark footage of all kinds into one easy-to-browse area, visitors can find what they need even faster and easier than before.” The collection features formats from DV to HD video and film, with all clips viewable online. And for those interested in the cinematographers who contribute to the Sharks collection, OceanFootage also provides easy and immediate links to further information about these expert ocean filmmakers and their encounters, with detailed photos and biographies.
For those seeking specific or hard-to-find Shark footage, if they can’t find the specific shot they need, they can submit a Custom Shot Request at OceanFootage. With a network of over 150 cinematographers worldwide, OceanFootage can track down almost any shot imaginable in the exact format the customer needs.
OceanFootage also plans to add even more incredible shark footage in the next few months -- including breaching Great White Sharks and additional footage on High Definition and 35mm.
