Escape to Pacific

We decided to go into this challenging project because we have gathered experience with documentary production for TV broadcasting during the past several years, we’re an experts for underwater filming, using drones (UAS) for aerial filming, and we have got over 90 awards at international film festivals in Czech Republic, Europe, and the USA.

We will shoot and live on aboard a catamaran where we will spend at least 8 months a year, and we will have a better chance to capture a time-lapse on individual destinations and observe changes in the environment and behavior of animals throughout the year.

We want to monitor the impacts of climate change on marine life and ocean pollution. We are experiencing the greatest loss of biodiversity on our planet. We will work with conservation organizations, marine biologists, scientists to research and monitor these adverse effects on marine life and nature on the remote Melanesia archipelagos (part of the Pacific).

  • Solomon Islands
  • Vanuatu
  • New Caledonia
  • Fiji

The conclusion after a detailed and contained research of particular worldknown brands of catamaran producers is that the most suitable size of a catamaran for these purposes would be 50′ to 55′ length. We have chosen catamaran Lagoon 52F which will be equipped and branded for our project. This project is going to be introduced by Lagoon Catamarans producer on the boot at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2020.

We are honored that the Lagoon Catamarans producer will be one of the major partners and we will cooperate closely with the Club Lagoon and its members on interesting events in the Pacific.
Another important partner of our project is MARES, producer of professional scuba gear who will support us throughout the project in the Pacific.

Escape to Nature is an independent film and photography production which ensure all costs for film making and production from its own resources. Though there is a co-production with TV Channels, most of the budget is still dependant on external sources and the support of our partners, sponsors and investors.

The longstanding catamaran usage during shooting documentary films in exotic destinations (8 months a year) is a guarantee of better quality shots for project parts, as it can provide accommodation and a safe base for Escape to Nature team. Continuous stay on the catamaran of the whole team will allow us more flexibility of movement, self-sufficiency, and selection of locations for shooting according to our current needs.

In connection with our project, we are gradually establishing contacts and cooperation with marine biologists and foundations aimed at protecting the oceans and underwater life.

We are looking for partners and sponsors. If you are interested to support this unique project aimed at protecting untouched nature and wildlife, send us an e-mail or support this project right now through our “Donations” page.
