The Weedfish

Matt Silcock (Director), Aart van Dijk (Co-director/Writer) and Zoe-Rose Herbert (Producer).

The hunt for an elusive fish in New Zealand’s disappearing kelp forests sends two marine scientists on a deep underwater dive.

Our waters are under threat. In a bold attempt to defend them, two marine researchers and photographers embark on a wild search for the Crested Weedfish. The goal, capture a powerful photo of the rarely-seen fish before its home is damaged beyond repair.

HAKA haha

Corinna Hunziker (Director) and Justin Scott (Producer).
