SCRIPT TO SCREEN – A look at the work of the media diver and the challenges of putting an underwater action sequence onto film. Presented by Mike Seares: Media Diving Supervisor/Underwater Co-ordinator
Mike Seares started diving in 1976 and since then his life has revolved around the underwater world. Following an Honours degree in marine biology, and gaining advanced diving instructor and professional media diving qualifications, he has run a diving school in London, led diving expeditions around the world, and worked extensively in the film and television industry.
His experience extends from safety and coordinating roles on feature films, commercials, pop promos and TV productions, to underwater camera work on documentaries, news reports and other video projects.
In 1992 he received the Duke of Edinburgh award for underwater filming on a joint forces expedition to HMS Repulse and HMS Prince of Wales in the South China Sea. Today Mike is involved in developing projects for print, film and television and producing the iUNDERWATER videobook series.
