Genesis
2019
13, 7

“In the beginning, God, God created the heavens and the earth.  And the earth was empty and without order between darkness on the face of the abyss … and the spirit of God that remained above the waters said: Let there be light; And there was light.  And in that way, he separated the light from the darkness … In the light, he called it day, and the darkness he called night … “

This phrase that is extracted from the old testament of the Bible, belong that which relates the creation of the universe in the so-called first book Genesis – from the Christian Bible – serves as a conceptual basis for a free recreation of the structure of the universe, man and earth: It is an open and personal interpretation – free of religious or scientific character – to explore abstract concepts of the beginning of life and the universe.

Shark Heroes
2021

For the general public, often sharks are lumped into one category … that is feared.  However, sharks and consequent shark behavior is incredibly diverse.  Most species would be relatively safe to take a “dip” with.  However, there are two species that vie for the top predator prize in  the community of sharks … the Great White shark and the Bull shark both compete for the distinction as the apex predator of the deep.  The Great White is the largest of the carnivorous shark species and are the perfect killing machine.  The Bull Shark, although smaller is more aggressive and considered by many experts to be the more dangerous of the two species.  They are among the most ferocious of all sharks.

Both species have finely tuned electro-magnetic sensory abilities to locate and hunt prey.  In a scientific-first experiment, Shark Wars: The Ultimate Predator will explore how their abilities compare and push their highly developed sensory systems to the limit.

Shark Wars will capture previously unseen shark behavior for the first time on the planet, in virtual darkness, in shark hot spots in Fiji and Australia.  Our filming platform will be a revolutionary shark cage, taking its design from the F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter.  Using this cutting edge technology, renowned shark researcher Dr. Will Robbins will conduct an incredible two-phase research experiment to more fully understand the super senses of these fearsome animals to determine which shark is the ultimate predator.

Angkor: The Lost Empire of Cambodia
2020
46, 39

A civilization that rose to become the envy of the world, only to disappear … a mystery waiting to be unlocked by modern archaeologists, scientists and explorers.

Following an epic spree of religious building whose scale and ambition rivals the pyramids of Egypt, Angkor is the scene of one of the greatest vanishing acts of all time.  The Khmer kingdom lasted from the 9th to the 15th centuries and at its height dominated a large swathe of South-East Asia from Myanmar to the west to Vietnam in the East.  As many as one million people lived in Angkor, the capital, which sprawled across an area the size of New York’s five boroughs, making it the most extensive urban complex of the pre-industrial world.  By the late 16th Century, the once resplendent capital of the empire, with its thousands of elaborate temples and religious monuments, was being overrun by the surrounding jungles.

Many experts have attempted to provide answers, and theories abound.  1300 carved inscriptions survive on temple doorjambs but the Khmer people of Angkor left not a single word explaining their kingdom’s collapse. This will be a visually stunning film … an epic adventure where science, mystery and ancient civilization intersect.
