Riveting short film takes you under
the sea in 360 degrees
By Matt Petronzio
Valen's Reef, a new 360-degree short film from environmental organization Conservation International, follows West Papuan fisherman-turned-conservationist Ronald Mambrasar and his 8-year-old son Valen as they explore the protected Bird's Head Seascape.
Created in collaboration with virtual reality production company Here Be Dragons and supported by the Tiffany & Co. Foundation, the film was shot in late March and early April, and debuted Monday at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
