MOVIES & DOCUMENTARY IN THE MAKING

THE DIVE CHANNEL SPECIAL PRODUCTION DEPARTMENT

For 15 years now, we have been successfully filming underwater and supported many broadcasters on the field. Our specialty remains in the underwater, war and history related domain. We started out wanting to make films the way we want to, with a heart. We want to be able to tell the stories that should be heard regardless of the ‘big budget’ to produce them. Our aspiration is to share with the people involved a sense of ownership and pride in the final product.

Our aspiration is to share with the people involved a sense of ownership and pride in the final product.

We became dynamic and adaptable to meet our objective. We all benefit from living in an ever-changing world; the technology and the people are becoming tolerant of formats other than 'broadcast quality'. To us sometimes it is more important to document the stories than to have it erase from mankind forever. We are now producing documentaries free from any state or studio system, a truly independent company; it started with our founder and his camcorder, nearly 15 years later we're on the verge of completing our own documentary series, branching out into the challenges of feature and movie making.

2015 has been a significant year for us. As we progressively move towards our goals we will continue to remember the many talents and people that has make what we do possible and to make filmmaking a truly heart felt undertaking.

The Dive Channel produces fiction pieces and documentary films. We also offer various services from the pre-production process to the final steps of distribution.

We use this website as a marketing tool toward distributing our films and as a way to update our audience on our projects, and to offer different multimedia concepts to re-experiment our films whatever their current status may be.

Our current projects include Bravery Beneath the Waves (currently in production), The Forgotten Empress (currently in post-production) and The Whale Shark Boy.
