Morgan Maassen’s Love Letter to the Ocean


Morgan Maassen spends more time in the water than he does out.

And when your office is the ocean, you tend to gain a hefty appreciation for the depth of its power—and that’s exactly what spurned Morgan’s latest short film, Water III. Shot on location in a laundry list of some of the world’s most beautiful spots—Tahiti, Indonesia, Hawaii, Australia, Barbados, Maldives, Philippines and California—Morgan made use of a Red Weapon, using a Nikon 14mm F/2.8 and 35mm f/1.4 lens in SPL waterhousing, for this masterpiece of a vignette. Pure magic, and a timely reminder of what we have to lose if we don’t turn this fossil-fuelled rock around, and soon. Hit play on Water III above.
