Following on from my serialisation, here is my full 90-minute documentary about the marine life of the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia. Subtitles are available for both the narration and the names of the marine species and dive sites. If you disagree or wish to add to any of the content, do please comment.

In September 2007 I took my old Sony HVR-Z1P to the Lembeh Strait for 9 days and came back with a ridiculous amount of footage of a ludicrous number of critters. Six and a half years later, I've finally made a documentary of it. Speed of post-production is not one of my strengths Last year I posted a prologue video. Now, finally, here is the first episode, which introduces Lembeh's location at the heart of the Coral Triangle, and takes a look at corals and tunicates. If it's OK, I'll post future weekly episodes on this thread. The camera was in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing with a flat port, and I used a Century +3.5 achromatic diopter for most of the macro shots. I used Light & Motion Elite (halogen) lights on most shots. As always, honest feedback is welcome - positive, neutral or negative.
I've been working on a 90-minute documentary called "Mucky Secrets", about Lembeh Strait critters. I still have some way to go before finishing it, but here's a prologue I made in advance of the full release. I really tried to show the personalities of the animals, which isn't easy when they only have about 3 seconds each. Feedback welcome!
Nick Hope posted a topic in Critter IdentificationWe've kind of been here before, but anyway... I identified this cuttlefish from the Lembeh Strait, North Sulawesi, Indonesia, as Sepia bandensis (dwarf cuttlefish), but now I'm wondering if it's more likely a small Sepia latimanus (broadclub cuttlefish), or even something else. Any idea? Sorry, I'm not sure of the size, but the dead staghorn coral it's in puts it at perhaps 8-10cm. It kind of "blushes" red. Video clips here.
