Famous Ocean Explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau Directs His First IMAX® Theater Film, "Secret Ocean 3D"

3D Entertainment Distribution To Release Film Worldwide As Of March 2015

LOS ANGELES and LONDON, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Famous ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau is currently directing his first film for IMAX® theaters and giant screen cinemas, "Secret Ocean 3D" (working title). Co-produced by Ocean Futures Society (OFS) and 3D Entertainment Films, the 40-minute documentary will allow audiences to discover the ocean as never before. It is slated for release worldwide in 3D and 2D beginning in March 2015.

"Since the 1940s, the Cousteau family has been deeply connected to the ocean. Several generations have grown up with our Calypso adventures, which allowed the public to discover what was a totally unknown world at that time," said Jean-Michel Cousteau. "What I was drawn to in this new adventure is that by using new digital macro and motion-macro 3D technology, we are able to go one step further in the discovery of the ocean in a way that my father could have only imagined. Even after 65 years of diving, I was blown away by the spectacular first images we captured, as I discovered an entirely new world too small to be seen by the naked eye. My mission for decades has been to educate future generations so that they understand, fall in love with and protect the ocean. 'Secret Ocean 3D' will help me fulfill these goals and convey my fascination and awe."

"I believe Large Format cinema is the most exciting medium through which to share the Cousteau passion for the ocean with all audiences," said screenwriter Pamela Stacey. "I have worked as a writer with both Captain Cousteau and Jean-Michel on their documentaries and it is a great honor and challenge for me to be able to help translate their adventures to the giant screen. This film delivers an unknown ocean in spectacular fashion."

"It's truly a thrill for me to be overseeing the educational components of 'Secret Ocean,'" said Dr. Richard Murphy, senior marine biologist for the Cousteaus for over 40 years. "I am excited that we will have the opportunity to work with many renowned mission-based institutions which will help us convey the messages that the Cousteau family have been sharing with the public for over 60 years."

"We are delighted and honored to be overseeing the worldwide distribution of this wonderful project, which is already generating tremendous interest," said Francois Mantello, CEO and Chairman of 3D Entertainment Distribution. "What better represents the ocean than the Cousteau name? Working with Jean-Michel's team and foundation, OFS, we are already planning a full range of marketing and promotional support, as well as a comprehensive educational program, for the film's release."
