Reef Patrol's Passion

This is what we do and love!

Explainer Videos & Animations

For subjects, that are not able to be caught on film or photo, animations suiting the subject can come in handy.

Film

Underwater or above the ocean, Reef Patrol creates short films and impressions of ocean related topics.

Photography

Sometimes all you need is just the right picture in the right moment.

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.

Filming will always be one of our favourite ways of showing people the wonders of our earth, but films cannot be manipulated as easily during post-production as still photographs. So people will basically believe what they see. One of the most important tools of post-production therefore is the associated music. The right sound sets the groundwork for the overall feeling and emotion of the film, which in turn helps to achieve the desired vision.
Our aim is to contribute as much creative content as possible to help open people´s eyes to the wonders of our earth and to make our knowledge available for anyone who wants to use it. In addition, we will continue to learn as much as possible about new research and preservation topics. We are always happy to meet and connect with like-minded people from around the world and build a community to preserve our oceans, our earth.
Animation is always useful to express things that either cannot be filmed, or that would be unclear to the viewer. It can be also used as an eye-catcher or just as a simple introduction to a film. Currently there are short animation films in progress, so stay tuned for upcoming release dates!
Our team has completed different dive courses such as: - BSAC Sports Diver course - BSAC Dive Leader course (WIP) - BSAC Course Accelerated Decompression Procedures (WIP) - BSAC Automated External Defibrillator - Oxygen Administration - Nitrox - Compressor Operation - Drysuit Diving
