For Discovery Channel 3D
Storyhouse Productions tapped Adam to capture underwater images for Discovery’s first 3D commission. Giant jellyfish have invaded the coast of South Korea in recent years, posing a serious threat to fishermen and their harvest. Dr Monty Graham, jellyfish researcher from the US, wants to know why — and capturing a specimen could provide clues to their reproductive success. Murky, nutrient-rich water and strong currents made filming in 3D particularly challenging.
But catching one — and avoiding the powerful stinging tentacles — is no easy task. Adam used a new HD-3D camera in a prototype housing, filming inside fishing nets where the massive jellyfish are inadvertently caught. He pushed the limits of the camera technology to document Monty Graham’s collection dives.
