Ten Thousand Sharks (4K)
Bernard Walton, May 2016
Bernard Walton has started production on his latest film " Ten Thousand Sharks", the story about the greatest gathering of sharks in the world.
Every winter TEN THOUSAND sharks come to Florida’s shores, just a few feet from where
holidaymakers bathe and swim. From the air, the sea can be seen as a closely packed mass of
sharks. Blacktip are one of the few sharks that both leap and surf the waves. When it comes to
leaping clean out of the water, they spin several times in the air in a spectacular maneuver. But by mid-March these large dense shoals have vanished. Every year the same questions are asked - why are these sharks here and what are they doing?
Wildscreen: home for innovation
Bernard Walton, October 2014
Technology was the talk of the festival, but economics will dictate the form, says film-maker Bernard Walton
The Wildscreen Festival has always been the place to see new technology. Back in 1988, we were shown High Definition on a huge TV monitor that required six men to carry it in. Great excitement greeted this monster of a TV, as wide as it was deep.
