WHAT WE'VE DONE

 

CONTENT MEDIUMS

MICRO-DOCUMENTARIES

Micro-documentaries are short feature films (3-7 minutes) showcasing non-profit environmental conservation and education initiatives. We help create content to increase the publicity  and social impact of existing projects with a call to action for greater public participation and contribution.

CSR SHORT FILMS

As a corporate enterprise, you may be doing good, but often times, unseen work in protecting our oceans. We help you tell your story, so as to positively influence consumer behaviour and shed light on the environmental commitment you are championing through your business.

JOURNALISTIC CONTENT

Ranging from photographic to multi-modal journalistic content, such as magazine articles, posters and event videography, we equip you with customised visual content focused on themes such as biodiversity, climate action and sustainable development.

TINY HEROES OF OUR SEA

IN COLLABORATION WITH BRUWILD FOR WORLD OCEANS DAY 2019

Tiny Heroes of Our Sea showcases the rich reef biodiversity of Brunei’s waters and the ecosystem services of smaller organisms. 

The film was launched in Singapore at Seastainable Co’s World Oceans Day Event, and in Brunei. A successful fundraiser through the launch went towards supporting BruWILD’s marine conservation efforts. Royal Brunei Airlines will also feature it as part of its in-flight entertainment come September 2019.

THE CITY REEF INITIATIVE

BY MARINA AT KEPPEL BAY

We were happy to work with Marina at Keppel Bay to create a film showcasing their ongoing project, The City Reef Initiative

 

As part of the marina’s environmental commitment to ocean conservation, outreach programmes in collaboration with The International SeaKeepers Society, marine science research partnerships with the National University of Singapore and internal conservation regulations have been undertaken. As a result, the marina has become home to an impressive array of marine epibiota, which we gave viewers a glimpse of too. 

 

JOURNALISTIC CONTENT

EVENT COVERAGE FOR PEACE BOAT & UNITED NATIONS WORLD OCEANS DAY 2019

We partnered with Japanese-based NGO, Peace Boat, to produce a video series covering the third rendition of the Ocean and Climate Youth Ambassadors Programme 2019 - a voyage of youth advocacy and environmental activism by a group of youths from small island developing states (SIDS), culminating in the United Nations World Oceans Day celebrations on board the ship and at the UN Headquarters in New York City.

PHOTO-ARTICLES FOR ASIAN GEOGRAPHIC  

We covered a series of photo-articles featuring Singapore's marine biodiversity and plastic pollution for Asian Geographic Magazine's No. 134, Issue 1 (2019), focused on the environment and entitled 'Our Battle for Sustainability'.  

UNDERWATER PHOTO-SHOOT FOR MARINA AT KEPPEL BAY

Recently, we wrapped up an underwater photography project at Marina at Keppel Bay, aimed at showcasing the incredible marine biodiversity which thrives along the urban pontoons within the marina.⁣ Six dives and about 12 hours underwater, we got to showcase Marina at Keppel Bay’s city reefs from beneath and this place continues to amaze, how rows of urban pontoons have over time become home to an incredible kaleidoscope of marine life.⁣

We even got to capture colourful sea slugs, juvenile hawksbills, jellyfish and seahorses which had found refuge within the marina - many of these species would even be considered a rarity in Singapore’s natural reefs. Here’s a couple of highlights from the shoot. ⁣

 

Why is this important? It’s evidence that if we build man-made urban structures right, we can still achieve great marine life thriving! It becomes increasingly essential that ordinary people and policy-makers alike recognise this, especially with increasing reclamation and coastal works planned to combat climate change. ⁣ Marina at Keppel Bay was the chosen site for Minister Desmond Lee’s visit last year during the closing ceremony of the International Year of the Reef - where he met with marine scientists working on seawalls and their influence on marine life. As well as Keppel - a leading marine engineering company. ⁣
