Alan will take this edit and, using iMovie, create a 4 ½ minute film that we share through an unlisted link on YouTube. Another big aspect in producing the final film is the research that goes into finding the right music. We are particularly excited about the music in our summer 2017 film, which has a Bonaire connection. It is from the movie Children of the Wind, a documentary about three windsurfers from Bonaire, a movie we highly recommend you see.

Joan is veteran diver who has logged more than 500 dives during a twenty-five year plus diving career. A retired special education teacher, Joan first started taking still photographs after twelve years of diving without any cameras. She quickly took to capturing the beauty of undersea life on Bari reef, and after eight years decided she wanted to try underwater video.
After extensive research on what camera would best serve her needs, Joan decided on the Sony RX-100 in a Nauticam housing, with Sola and Fantsea video lights. She balances the light output with a red filter attached to the housing.
We estimate that Joan shoots between 250 and 300 minutes of video on a trip. During the course of our dive trips, we do periodic
edits and downloads to review what we have, and to see what Joan needs to shoot to complete our film. This download, after editing, will give us about 30 minutes of video.
