ISLA VISTA: BELOW THE SURFACE

Isla Vista is known for a lot of things; UCSB, sandy beaches, expensive bagels, dirty feet, biking through stop signs, and of course - the partying. Lots of Partying. As many of us know, Del Playa can either offer you the time of your life or just be a complete disaster on any given weekend. But college students aren't the only ones bustling around this town all the time. In fact, Isla Vista is home to one of the most complex, diverse, and biologically productive ecosystems on earth - yet few of us know it even exists. All one has to do is look just off the party-ravaged oceanside balconies of DP, and just below the surface.

 

Every shot in this 38 minute Blue Planet style documentary was filmed entirely within in Isla Vista. All underwater footage was taken on breath hold, without the use of SCUBA.
