The story of One World One Ocean begins with a family who has been making IMAX Theatre films for 35 years in far-off places like the top of Mt. Everest, the ice caves of Greenland, the Nile river, and the deep-ocean reefs of the South Pacific.
Led by filmmaker/surfer/diver Greg MacGillivray, who got his start making surfing films in the 1960s and who later co-founded MacGillivray Freeman Films in Laguna Beach, this production team had an amazing string of successes, producing many of the most popular IMAX Theatre films in history, including Everest, the highest grossing IMAX film ever. Three of these films were about the ocean, and two of them — The Living Sea and Dolphins — were nominated for Academy Awards.
Then Greg and his wife Barbara heard oceanographer Sylvia Earle warn that the ocean is at a tipping point; that human actions taken in the next ten years will determine the ocean's fate for the next 10,000 years. Ten years left to save the ocean!
