Proposed interviews for the film include Great White shark researcher Brett McBride, artist Matt Beard, photographer Chris Burkard, bodysurfer Angie Oschmann, conservationist Jean-Michelle Cousteau, free-diver Herbert Nitsch, oceanographer Walter Munk and many others. In addition to riveting personal interviews, the misfit pictures crew is filming in spectacular above-and-below-the-water locations around the world (South Africa, Greece, Fiji, Australia, Ireland, New England, California, and Hawaii) to display the natural beauty of the oceans.
The goal of E is to raise ocean awareness on a global level while reminding the viewer how closely we are all connected to the sea; and, to introduce people to a unique group of people who are absolutely captivating.
"We will give you an honest and personal look through the eyes of those who thrive under the most extreme water conditions, those ensuring the proper care of the oceans for future generations and those who simply derive a sense of pure joy from the sea." -- Pierce & Petra Kavanagh, pictured above.

The dynamic duo also co created the innagural San Diego Surf Film Festival earlier this year, which was a huge success (and I am stoked and honored to have been a part of the festival). http://www.sandiegosurffilmfestival.com/
