Shark Photographer Andy Murch and Magazine Editor Eli Martinez embark on a road trip around North America to film sharks., 30 July 2009
Author: andymurch1 from Canada

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 and Eli and Endless Perseverance is presently in the process of filming his next shark related production which will have a strong conservation theme.
