Created by a team of National Geographic explorers, ‘Grandpa’s Reef’ is an underwater VR film.


The project

In May 2018, my team traveled to Occidental Mindoro, in the Philippines, to shoot our underwater film. We shot at Apo Reef Natural Park and in the nearby community of Sablayan. The goal was to create a film that would allow the audience to be transported to a pristine, protected coral reef for the first time, we aim to shift their understanding of a healthy ecosystem and of what their ocean should look like.
