Combining the knowledge and experience of previous productions with newly developed saltwater-proof Indiecam technology, Anthony Dod Mantle and Ron Howard are breaking ground in visual storytelling again.

Numerous IP68 rated indieGS2K systems and hundreds of meters of custom underwater cabling enabled the visionary duo to realize this bold venture. Needless to say, we are very proud of having been part of this quest.

Oscar winner Ron Howard (“A Beautiful Mind”) directs the action adventure “In the Heart of the Sea,” based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “In the Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.
