OF SHARK AND MAN
Trailer - www.ofsharkandman.com
Of Shark and Man is an innovative, complex and highly ambitious feature documentary which looks to completely revolutionise how we see the relationships humans share with sharks around the world.
The film tells the incredible story of Shark Reef in Fiji, where sharks are worshipped as gods and where “the world's most dangerous shark” brought a once dead reef back to life.
Described as “the most anticipated shark film for years,” Of Shark and Man is a cinematically creative, raw and at times thrilling journey, seen through the eyes of a passionate first time Film-Maker who has risked everything for his one final shot at changing his life forever.
David Diley was an ordinary 32 year old, stuck in a rut and in a job he hated. His life was going nowhere but he had a lifelong dream and one day, he decided to do something about it. David went from having no experience, no contacts, no technical knowledge, no equipment and no money, to becoming an internationally renowned, multi-award winning Film-Maker by making his own rules and doing it all his own way.
In four years, with his ground- breaking approach to wildlife documentary film-making, he had forced his way into an industry which gives few chances . This is a story of sacrifice, self belief and the world's biggest Bull Sharks.
He continues this great work with a portion of the proceeds from this event going to Tangaroa Blue, a charity "dedicated to the removal and prevention of marine debris" which is one of the biggest threats facing marine life.
