Dolphin Glide

Australia, 2003 (MIFF 2003, Australian Showcase)

Director: George Greenough

George Greenough has been called the most forward-thinking ocean-immersive motion picture photographer of the last few decades. Dolphin Glide is his newest work and is the culmination of his latest innovation: an underwater camera rig designed to 'swim with the dolphins'. As with his previous works (such as the cult classic The Innermost Limits of Pure Fun), Dolphin Glide is a hypnotic trip below the waves to experience what we could never experience first-hand. Beautifully shot and constructed, it is a glimpse of the lives of dolphins that only an innovator like Greenough could capture.
