We created these videos so children everywhere could experience the beauty and magic of the sea no matter where they live. Ocean creatures are far more interesting and spectacular than cartoons and I'm thrilled that kidthing is giving me the opportunity to share the amazing animals of the ocean I've captured on film with kids everywhere.
