Join the project!
Over the course of two years, world-renowned cinematographer and world-record freediver, Fred Buyle, and Fabrice Schnoller will be leading four scientific expeditions to the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans. They will be joined by a support team of acoustic and cognition scientists. And… one of you.
On each expedition they will dive face-to-face with sperm whales and record our encounters with video and audio equipment. They will use the video for a full-length documentary film to be released in 2016. A team of acoustic scientists from the University of Paris and DAREWIN, a nonprofit cetacean research organization, will use the audio data to try to understand the sperm whale click language.[iframe width="615" height="376" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/98580566" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen]
For this project, the team of scientists will get at their disposal the Kolor 360° video solutions namely: the underwater rig (available exclusively on Kolor store within 2 to 3 weeks) and Autopano Video Pro. This footage — the first of its kind — can be used in Oculus Rift and other virtual reality platforms, or even your computer. This experience will bring you side-by-side with these incredible animals. Think & join the project!
