Director Biography - Trisha Stovel, Russell Clark

We're two scuba diving filmmakers based out of Vancouver Island. A mutual love of both diving and filmmaking brought us together a number of years ago, helped us form a successful video company, and now has us consumed with spreading the word about our favourite place in the world, British Columbia!

Russell was born and raised in England, moving to British Columbia in 2010 beginning a new life full of diving and underwater adventures. Trisha moved here from Ontario in 2003, began diving immediately, and never looked back. Since moving here, both of us have spent more time underwater than we could have ever imagined, and we've only seen a fraction of what there is to re-discover amongst the vastness of our province.

Our days revolve around the ocean, whether we're under the water exploring somewhere new, trying to video the behaviour of an octopus, or sifting through hours and hours of editing - it's all about the ocean.
