CHALLENGING STEREOTYPES, THIS INSPIRING FILM COMBINES A PROFOUNDLY MOVING HUMAN INTEREST STORY WITH ADVENTURE AND STUNNING WILDLIFE

Jaimen Hudson’s aerial whale and dolphin imagery is absolutely stunning. His spectacular photographs and videos reach online audiences in excess two hundred and fifty million people and counting. His popularity is soaring and media outlets around the world are clamouring to use his breathtaking images. Unknown to the tens of millions who revel in his striking images, Jaimen has a remarkable story. He is a quadriplegic.

Ten years after the accident that confined him to a wheelchair, Jaimen is embarking on the greatest challenge of his life – to get back out on the water and film wildlife. With the added pressures of having a new-born and running his family’s business, Jaimen works with renowned wildlife cinematographer, mentor and family friend Leighton De Barros, to take his wildlife cinematography career to the next level and fulfil his dreams. His first expedition is to the waters off Rottnest Island off the coast of Western Australia to film Humpback whales from a small boat. His next challenge is to attempt to learn how to dive and capture the incredible marine life of the Fitzgerald River National Park, on the south coast of Western Australia from the sky, and under the sea.

Much to Leighton’s safety concerns Jaimen wants to start diving as soon as possible, but they agree on beginning a dive-training program at the local pool. The dive team is led by Jaimen’s parents and professional dive masters, Lesley and Peter Hudson, who are united in supporting their son to live his life to the fullest.

Pushing himself to the max he will also travel to South Australia to film the Great White sharks. Armed with a state-of-the art vessel, aerial drones, marine drones and remotely operated underwater cameras, Jaimen revels in the possibilities of bringing his tens of millions of on-line followers the stunning beauty of the underwater world. The holy grail of Great White sharks awaits, but will Jaimen be able to fulfil his own personal call of the wild to dive with and film one of the ocean’s deadliest predators?
