From the spectacular installation at the Smithsonian’s Sant Ocean Hall comes an Ocean Odyssey…

Ocean Odyssey

In 2008, The Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. opened the largest exhibit in its history, the Sant Ocean Hall. A keynote feature of the hall is the Ocean Odyssey presentation – eight high-definition projections that wrap 200 feet of the hall’s upper bay.

The Smithsonian commissioned filmmaker and ocean conservationist Feodor Pitcairn to create this one of a kind installation. A pioneer in underwater HD production, Pitcairn traveled with his team to some of the world’s most remote and magical ocean places to capture stunning footage of marine ecosystems.

FROM THE TINY…TO THE TITANIC

See tiny damselfish in their splendid coral reef habitat. Witness sperm whales up close and the graceful ballet of giant manta rays. Discover ocean oddities such as the marine iguanas of the Galapagos, the only seagoing lizards, and the huge Mola Mola off California, an ocean sunfish that reaches spans of up to fourteen feet. Watch whale sharks cruising through the mist at a spawning event in Belize and a pugnacious garibaldi fish protecting his nest. And much, much more!

Now you can watch all the wonders Pitcairn filmed for the Smithsonian in this very special edition of Ocean Odyssey reformatted for Home Video in both Blu-Ray and DVD.

MAGNIFICENT HD CINEMATOGRAPHY

This disc includes the 57-minute Ocean Odyssey feature with two viewing options: one with music and narration and one with music only …plus a 47-minute, behind-the-scenes Bonus Feature with cinematographers Feo Pitcairn and Bob Cranston sharing adventures at sea and insights from the production.
