The Little Things

Multiple locations — 2011-2015

This one's for the kids! This set of videos was created for a diver-friend who teaches 5- and 6- year-olds. The kids are of course familiar with sharks, dolphins and whales, but we wanted to introduce them to some of the ocean's smaller creatures. The video is targeted towards kindergartners, but it should be enjoyable for kids and adults of all ages.
