"Liquid Motion was born over 30 years ago, when 2 passionate souls united on a tiny island in the Maldives, with a camera, a vision, determination, passion and a dream. For the next 30 years they worked together, living in some of the most remote paradises on earth: diving, filming, researching, making world-class movies and becoming one of the most successful husband-and-wife teams in the business. Sounds like fantasy? Meet the Chaumettes...’ (DIVE Magazine, June 2013)

ABOUT THE FOUNDERS

 

 

"We grew up learning about photography and film, the oceans, exploration and marine biology. By our 20s, there was no turning back. For decades, we lived barefoot on tiny desert islands all over the world, documenting and studying marine creatures day in, day out. We learned the animals habits, met bizarre and fascinating characters, and wrote about how they lived their lives. From archipelagos in The Seychelles and The Maldives, to remote islands in Fiji, The Pacific, Indonesia and The Caribbean, the oceans were brimming with fish, the reefs vibrant and colourful, and the marine life abundant and thriving. There was so much life in the ocean. There were so many creatures to film, with such fascinating stories to tell...".

liquid motion founders anita and guy chaumette

For 30 years, Anita and Guy Chaumette have been exploring the worlds oceans, performing research with Scientists and bringing greater understanding about the ocean environment, its inhabitants and their impact on our planet and our lives.

With over one hundred prestigious awards and a proven record of inspiring audiences all over the globe, their work encompasses world-class natural history works, fine art photography, cinema, televison, education, advertising, and film. Their most loved feature films, respected series, underwater shows and ocean-art have entertained, educated, engaged and impacted people all over the world. They have been celebrated as some of the most consummate, creative Artists, Filmmakers and Photographers; their underwater imaging hailed as some of the best in the world.

Anita and Guy have been instrumental in marine conservation and environmental education and have contributed to numerous marine protection policies and win-win situations around the world.

They have created materials, authored courses, shared short films, series and movies, hosted shows, spoken at events, launched multi-media platforms, and achieved a vast global influence. They are determined, passionate, dedicated and driven. They have the brightest minds, to create the greatest impact.

They achieved it all by self-financing their work, working multiple jobs, making a lot of (very) crazy deals, and managing the worlds most elusive dive resorts, on remote coral atolls in the middle of vast oceans.

"We did whatever it took, to be able to return to the ocean and share its magic, again and again, day after day".

 

 

 

CREATING MAGIC

 

 

liquid motion & ocean foundation

 

Today, many of the remaining coral reefs experienced by divers are huge skeletons of long-lost thriving cities, abandoned by life.

Giant, deserted, underwater playgrounds, in which divers need to 'look' for the fish.

The ocean is in real danger, and so are we.

The threats are many, the risks are real.

The marine animals that still inhabit this paradise we are losing are resilient. They can be saved. The ocean can recover.

But they urgently needs the help of eveyone, now.

Based on the continuing destruction of the ocean environment, our mission is to significantly increase our production of world-class media and art, to make a greater impact, faster.

We are dedicated to producing world-class natural history films and multi-media works that present information in a manner that inspires people to love, preserve and protect the ocean world.

To grow, unite, and partner, with others dedicated to rescuing devastated marine environments, and preserving and rehabilitating those which remain strong.

To research, explore and share the landmark marine discoveries made by Scientists and Researchers every day.

And to amplify our proven ability to Entertain, Inspire, Educate, Impact and Engage new influencers - ultimately creating peace and harony on the planet, for people, the oceans and for generations to come.
