Dive One

It's official: "Dive One", my newest completed short and my first 100% underwater short film, has been submitted to film festivals and will be available to watch soon.

"Dive One" is a love story about a diver and the sea. At just under 4 minutes, this short film follows the journey of emotions exhibited by a first-time SCUBA diver. Nervousness, excitement, panic, fear, awe, and love, all feelings I've witnesses personally in my past dive students, evolve over time to music as our narrator Michele Venlee tells her story.

Using underwater footage I've collected over the past year in Hawai'i, Philippines, and California, editor Ali Nidzgorski complemented Sean Walsh's incredible original song to each of the story's emotions. After a month of editing, we are proud to stand by a product that will hopefully inspire others to join the "silent world".
