Recently, Omega undertook one of the most worthy global projects—footing the bill to create a top-notch 90-minute documentary, Planet Ocean, about the world’s oceans. To create this important documentary (which is being offered free for educational purposes), the brand turned to world-renowned conservationist and photographer, Yann Arthus-Bertrand. Arthus-Bertrand then brought on board director, Michael Pitiot. Arthus-Bertrand produced the aerial portions of the documentary, while Pitiot handled the marine portions. Omega sponsored a special screening of the film earlier this week in Miami and Thursday evening in Los Angeles, where Josh Duhamel (who narrated the landmark film) joined the event.
Here, Bertrand shares his thoughts on the ocean and the documentary, which took a full year to create. [Read more on ATimelyPerspective.com]
