OCEAN ODYSSEY: SECRETS OF THE DEEP (UK/USA, 2006, 60 min.)
Come with us on a fantastic journey through the largest habitat for humanity on earth into the uncharted territory of the ocean’s abyss. Through the eyes of a bull sperm whale, the ocean’s largest predator, infinite vistas and alien life forms are revealed against a violent, volatile and treacherous landscape that has remained impenetrable until now.

Directed by David Allen. Lead Animators: Adam Burnett, Richard Smith, Nigel Rafter, Angela King, Peter Clayton and Theo Facey. Visual Effects Producers: Lorna Patterson and Joanna Nodwell.
