The Wild North Sea

We Europeans think we know every square inch of our continent, all the while our largest wilderness, the North Sea, lies for the most part out of sight. That is now about to change. It’s true that the North Sea supports the busiest shipping routes in the world, is intensively fished and serves as a platform for a major energy transition. But first and foremost, the North Sea is our largest nature reserve, with a fascinating and undiscovered underwater world, home to a surprising wealth of marine life.

Dutch Maritime Productions and EMS FILMS are developing a major media project, including a 4-part TV series, a 85-minute cinema feature, online educational materials and an immersive movable projection unit, supported by events and merchandise. The goal is to share the many secrets of the North Sea with a wide ranging public.
