Above & Below Galápagos (Trailer)

This film is the essence of a 14 days boat expedition to the Galápagos National Park and shows the beauty, the biodiversity and the difference of the park's islands - from above, shot with a drone, and from below, revealing the vast marine life in the waters around.
The short movie is a trailer to the extended travel and wild life documentary 'Above & Below Galápagos National Park', but also stands for itself as an independent piece of areal & nature filming.
