In the new IMAX® film Under the Sea 3D, audiences will travel to some of the most exotic locations on this planet and see many creatures for the very first time. The film was shot by director/Cinematographer Howard Hall, produced by Toronto’s Toni Myers, executive produced by Graeme Ferguson, and produced for Howard Hall Productions by Michele Hall. This filmmaking team has captured some of the most extraordinary marine life ever shot on film, including the Stonefish – the world’s most venomous fish – and a new species of shark yet to be described by science.
See South Australia’s exquisite Leafy Sea Dragon and the endangered puppy-like Sea Lion – animals that can be found nowhere else on Earth. Filming with the IMAX 3D camera, the highest resolution motion picture camera ever created, allowed filmmakers to immerse audiences in this amazing underwater world as never before, bringing them face-to-face with these magical creatures. The film is narrated by Jim Carrey ad sponsored locally by Wachovia and co-sponsored by the Arthur F. and Alice E. Adams Foundation.
