David Attenborough’s latest BBC nature documentary Great Barrier Reef used cutting-edge camera technology to capture the view from 1000 feet below the ocean in stunning quality.
“We were able to get the latest camera equipment into remote parts of the reef,” explains director Mike Davis to Televisual. “Our underwater camera throughout was a RED Dragon 6K as we were keen to film in high resolution. The [submersible vehicle] Triton takes three people – the pilot Buck Taylor, David and the cameraman Paul Williams. He was on board with a Sony F55 filming David’s pieces to camera. We had cameramen outside the sub, cameras mounted on the sub looking out and looking back, GoPros littered all around.”
