Shot on locations as diverse as Palau, the Bahamas, New York and French Polynesia, the team behind Wild Ocean 3D takes us on a global journey to explore our connection with the ocean’s complex, parallel worlds. For the first time ever, see underwater life at the macro level in 3D, as shot on the world’s first underwater 3D digital beamsplitter rig. The Last Reef employs new underwater 3D technology to take us from the heart of the city to the heart of the reef, a vanishing territory more diverse and more colourful than we ever imagined.

Length: 20:00 and 40:00
