“California Dreaming”: A Cinematic Short Film Of Coastal Marine Life By Howard Hall (2014)

“California Dreaming” is a cinematic short film off the coast of California filmed and directed by Howard Hall.

Filmed and Directed by:   Howard Hall

Produced by:  Michele Hall

Music by:  Shie Rozow

“I made this video to present at a Reef Check fund raiser a few years ago. The event was in Los Angeles and Reef Check wanted to feature California marine life. The video was originally called 100 Miles since the images were captured within 100 miles of the Reef Check venue.

Most of this video was captured aboard one of the Truth Aquatics liveaboard dive boats out of Santa Barbara, California. We have made many films aboard their vessels including two IMAX features, and enjoyed countless days if great diving with their support..

Finally, people often ask where my favorite diving is. Well, on a good day, nothing beats the Southern California kelp forest.”

“I had the idea of a new astro time-lapse technique in which the camera is pointed right at the north star and mounted to a motorized pivot point directly lined up with the sensor so the camera is able to spin with the stars through the night. This is where inspiration for the title came from. Sit back, relax and Ride the Sky.”
