Storyline

Summer of the Sharks is an inside look at the lives of professional shark divers on the road, doing what they do best; chasing sharks and having fun. Along the way they face the harsh and exciting realities of this sport; ocean storms, aggressive sharks, close quarters, and the startling discovery of their beloved sharks being brutally killed - with a first ever, up-close look at shark fisherman. Summer of The Sharks was made to help promote eco-activism by showing a positive side to sharks and showing what's happening to them rather than "preaching" from an interview stand point. The road trip was a simple idea; dive the best shark spots in the world, and live out their own endless summer. Written by Steven Pavon

Shark Photographer Andy Murch and Magazine Editor Eli Martinez embark on a road trip around North America to film sharks.
30 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a fun project to be involved in. It was shot over a three month period and involved many days at sea playing with sharks. I think the movie really reflects the lifestyle that we lead but it's not always that glamorous. In the original cut there was a lot of bickering and a fair amount of profanity which the editor eventually decided to tone down to avoid diluting the overall message. If you would like to find out more about the real life work of the the characters in the documentary, follow our shark diving adventures on elasmodiver.com and sharkdivermag.com. Eli and Endless Perseverance is presently in the process of filming his next shark related production which will have a strong conservation theme.
