VICTORIA, BC, September 2, 2015 — On Sept 9th, 2015, Victoria's Mike Irvine will present real-time ocean interactions to the Giant Screen Cinema Association in San Francisco. A unique cinematic experience titled Beneath the Waves, will allow theatergoers to see, hear, talk, and share with divers LIVE as they explore the ocean. All without ever getting wet.
A recent graduate from the University of Victoria, Irvine became the first person to defend his thesis live from underwater in front of thousands people from over 10 countries on April 20th, 2015. "The ocean is a spectacular world that we hardly know anything of and it is my life's goal to bridge that gap through real-time interactions," Irvine says.
Co-founders of the Fish Eye Project, Mike Irvine and Maeva Gauthier have partnered with Tim Archer of Masters Digital to provide this unique experience. "This a new experience for our audiences and we are excited to be working with the Fish Eye Project," Paul Wild, IMAX Victoria Theatre Director.
The Fish Eye Project will also be presenting a Live Dive on the IMAX screen on September 17th for Experience Tectoria, a 2-day gathering of local entrepreneurs with international investors, thought-shapers and advisors.
Fish Eye Project has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to assist with the registration costs and transportation to present at the Giant Screen Cinema Association Conference. "We are appealing to our supporters, friends, family, and the generosity of people who care about our ocean and would like to see them live on the giant screens," said Maeva. Team Fish Eye is calling on everyone to share the crowdfunding campaign on their own social media platforms and spread the word far and wide. http://bit.ly/1NXQ4OT
