Reef Patrol's Passion

This is what we do and love!


Underwater filmmaking and nature related documentaries is at the core of Reef Patrol. We use our passion for the reefs and oceans of this world, but we also love capturing anything else that may be exciting to film!


Do you have a story to tell, that is difficult to explain? We create animations for complex subjects, so anyone can easily understand them.


In many cases, a picture says more than a thousand words. And sometimes, all we need is a moment in time.

research & education

Curiosity and learning fuels our creativity to learn about the developments in the ocean and conservation industry.

About Reef Patrol

We love making underwater films and animations. We also love taking care of the reefs and oceans of our world. Though we are no researchers, scientists or biologists, we feel an obligation to contribute to this community, to our oceans, and to nature. We want to help preserve the wonderful underwater world of our planet. So our way of contributing, is to spread its beauty through filming, animations, photography and work together with (non-profit) organisations around the globe.

Our focus mostly lies in filming underwater and working for organisations that dedicate their work to the oceans of our planet. But as we are creatives, we love filming anything that is exciting and challenging - above or underwater. So if you may have inquiries, that are not ocean or wildlife related, feel free to contact us anyway. We are more than happy to help you out with any project you have in mind.
Often, when organisations have a project they are planning, they need to raise funds. Professional animations help to pitch your new project to a potential sponsor through visual representation. Your project may be already up and running, but filming can't explain the complexity of it? That’s when animations provide a way for you to easily communicate your core message to your viewer. And the best thing about animations: we design them according to your vision, budget and design guidelines.
We created a broad network of likeminded creatives, scientists, researchers, divers, organisations and manufacturers. This network enables us to collaborate on new projects, as well as educate ourselves about new and important matters in the film and conservation industry.
