January 2012 – The multimedia production company BasementVision is shortly to commence filming at Four Seasons Kuda Huraa.
Established in 2003 by professional kite surfer Alex Brown, BasementVision now travels the globe to shoot stunning images, documenting the diverse world we live in. Their current project is entitled Rainforests of the Ocean –
“Rainforests of the Ocean” is a documentary film, which celebrates the conservation efforts of a nation under attack from the world. These low laying islands are bearing the brunt of the rising sea levels we all hear about, but what is happening to the humans that call this place home? What is happening to the marine life that has called this place home since before humans?
This film tells the stories of the local fishermen that supply the tuna for your sandwich, to the people battling to educate the world of the destruction that is drowning a nation. The Maldives is home to some of the most beautiful and unique species of fish and coral in the World, but this underwater utopia is set to become a deforested wasteland. Can our Human influence save this ecosystem?
Directed by Alexander Brown with BasementVision, In association with the University of Winchester, UK.
