Go ‘behind-the-scenes’ of British nature show Ocean Discovery in this comic mockumentary: Violet (a camera-girl with a wry sense of humor) and Ingrid (a marine biologist with a singular passion for whales) go looking for the loneliest whale (with a voice too high for the others to hear.)
An adventurous film about two women on completely different frequencies, brought together to find the loneliest whale in the world – a real whale who sings at the unique frequency of 52 hertz, too high for other whales to hear. At its core, it’s about the loneliness of not being heard, and unexpected encounters that turn into moments of connection and boost the spirit.
Inspired by the true story of the loneliest whale and the behind-the-scenes diaries of BBC’s Planet Earth, this production was made possible by the generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Science Foundation, the Puffin Foundation, the Nancy Malone Directing Award, and the Okeanos Foundation for the Sea.
We shot for 3 days on a small boat, with an entirely female cast and crew on board.
