DIRECTED BY ALICE WESLEY-SMITH
NOW YOU SEE ME
SARAH & SEBASTIAN is honoured to present Now You See Me, a series of short films directed by photographer & filmmaker
Alice Wesley-Smith, designed to create awareness around the challenges facing Australia’s most endangered marine wildlife.
BEHIND THE LENS
The NOW YOU SEE ME film series is a collaboration between SARAH & SEBASTIAN Co-founder and Creative Director Sarah Munro and ocean photographer, filmmaker and fellow scuba diving enthusiast Alice Wesley-Smith.
To share their love of the ocean and raise conservation issues close to their hearts, the duo travelled to remote locations across Australia to document the precious marine life that inhabit these incredible environments. The short films feature original, close up footage the pair have captured whilst diving together, illustrating compelling prose by writer Anna Harrison and narrated by voices connected to ocean conservation. The other-worldly films highlight the challenges facing the world beneath the waves and the importance of conserving Australia’s most vulnerable ecosystems.
SHARKS AND RAYS
The third film in our Now You See Me series illuminates the sharks and rays that inhabit the east coast of
Australia, from the unparalleled perspective of legendary conservationist and ocean photographer Valerie Taylor AM. Narrated by Taylor herself,
her engaging musings of the ocean and enduring relationships with sharks are imparted in prose penned by Anna Harrison.
