I spent 30 days embedded on the ship R/V Falkor, a scienctific research vessel sailing around the pacific ocean. I was documenting a group of scientists seeking out underwater volcanoes known as hydrothermal vents. It was a really cool project. The deep ocean is a uniquely challenging environment to work in, from battling seasickness in a typhoon, to competition for wifi. The trip was a huge success, the scientists discovered some really cool stuff, and will be returning next year with deep dive cameras to film and sample the incredible life that thrives at these newly discovered vents. We made lots of films, wrote blog posts, took photos, did stop motion animation (on something that never stopped motioning) and ran a competition to engage audiences with the project. Part 2 coming in 2016, stay tuned!
