TRAILER

PRODUCTION NOTES

here has never before been a comprehensive feature-length film portraying the beautiful legend of the dolphins in an enchanting adventure throughout the oceans of the Earth. Our task was a large one, requiring a constant change in crew and adaptation to weather conditions as we traveled to the Amazon jungle of Brazil, Mozambique, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Bimini, and Hawaii. Becoming one with the locals in each country, we were able to travel to the most remote areas to film each dolphin in its natural habitat. Sometimes, we were forced to return to shooting locations on multiple occasions, as the initial visit had unpredictable weather conditions causing the inability to capture the necessary footage required for this film.

The majority of the species selected for this production are hidden from the world, and unknown to the general public. Often the Bottlenose Dolphin, which we also filmed, is the dolphin species that everyone knows; however the mysterious Boto, the pink dolphins of the Amazon, the Spotted Dolphins of Bimini, the Hawaiian Spinner dolphins, the Dusky and Hectors Dolphins of New Zealand – these are all extraordinary beings that many will see for the very first time in NA NAI’A Legend of The Dolphins.

Finding the right location to shoot within each country was challenging, but we succeeded through years of extensive research. This involved travel to many of the countries at various times.  Director Jonathon Kay traveled to the Amazon four times before finding the perfect location for filming the Boto, the mysterious pink dolphins.

Filmed in Super 16mm to convey the full visual impact of these magnificent creatures, NA NAI’A Legend of The Dolphins is filmed underwater, bringing audiences into the world of each dolphin species and taking them on a wild adventure. Experienced underwater divers using specialized cameras were able to capture every aspect of each dolphin in breathtakingly beautiful detail.
