The main character in the upcoming film we are producing with The Watermen Project and Blend Media is the iconic Reef Manta. This gorgeous animal, belonging to the largest species of ray, cruises the Komodo islands and the oceans beyond.
Reef mantas typically reach a disc width of 3 to 3.5 meters, but can sometimes grow up to 5.5 meters (18 ft)! Being super close and surrounded by up to 10 mantas is a humbling, almost spiritual experience which we will never forget.
We have captured some amazing footage of this majestic creature, which we are post-producing for the film. We just wanted to share this first glimpse of what’s to come :D.
It is also vulnerable species that is on the IUCN Red List and although the Komodo National Park was brought to life to protect these animals and their habitat, we have seen massive pollution throughout the park, as we will show in the upcoming film we are working on with The Watermen Project, Blend Media and Marine Megafauna Foundation.
