Discovering Ireland’s Hypnotic Underwater Beauty

As a child Ken O'Sullivan was mesmerized by Jacques Cousteau's films. He is now an underwater filmmaker. Year-round, he records the seas around Ireland, the same cold waters that have lured him in for the past 10 years. His work has been done in solitude, and so it made sense to him to turn the camera away from the water and toward himself and his personal journey. The result is this short film by Sea Fever Productions.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
