Video: Kimbe Bay and the Coral Crucible
By Joseph Tepper, June 20, 2018 @ 01:16 PM (EST)

Papua New Guinea’s Kimbe Bay has some of the most amazing wide-angle underwater imaging opportunities anywhere on this blue planet. And while getting to PNG and back is quite a haul, you can virtually dive this stunning region through the short film “Kimbe Bay and the Coral Crucible.”

The latest of professional underwater videographer Lee Burghard’s “Paradise Found” series, the film shows off the best of PNG: Sharks, schooling fish, and pristine coral. “This is a short film showcasing a recent journey to Papua New Guinea aboard the MV Febrina,” writes Lee. “We explored the areas of Kimbe Bay, Fathers Reefs, and the Witu Islands. It was an experience beyond words…and this short film only offers a small glimpse of the beauty we found there.

Lee used a variety of equipment to achieve the final result, including a Nauticam setup for Canon’s 1DX Mk II, a Nauticam WACP, Panasonic GH5 (topside), and DJI Phantom Pro 3 (aerial). It’s a fantastic short film to be sure, and later this month, Lee will give DPG an inside look at how it all came together. So, stay tuned for that!
