"Now Hall's footage can be viewed and purchased with immediate delivery by OceanFootage.com online -- and all while he's out shooting the footage and doing what he loves best."
Hall is also enthusiastic about the new partnership. "Through the OceanFootage.com website, we can sell footage to clients who can't wait for us to produce preview tapes and make dubs," Hall comments. "OceanFootage.com definitely provides the most modern tools for selling our material."
The new collection available on OceanFootage.com from Howard Hall Productions will include the company's most spectacular material as captured by Hall and his wife, and longtime production partner, Michele Hall (also an Emmy winner). The footage is startling in its beauty, and includes everything from gracefully swaying Kelp Forests, to frolicking Sea Lions, slow-moving Sunfish, graceful Sea Turtles, schools of ghostly Hammerhead Sharks, singing Humpbacks, and dozens more. The footage includes a wide variety of Dolphins, Sharks (over a dozen species), Whales, Manta Rays and other big marine animals, as well as Schooling Fish of all kinds and a wide range of marine life and environments. The footage also includes some of Hall's personal favorites, with several breathtaking, colorful and beautiful minutes in different Coral Reef habitats (complete with Anemones, Clownfish, and Morays, just to name a few).
Hall's image capture system is state-of-the-art 24p high-definition video. His material is available in 24p 1080 high definition video or any standard resolution down-conversion, and will also be available for immediate download in down-converted DV.
The footage from Howard Hall Productions also includes several scenic views on the ocean's surface, as well as devastating looks at the loss of marine life that can occur due to undersea pollution, nets, overfishing, and other manmade threats. With this in mind, Hall adds, "Thanks to OceanFootage.com, we hope to spend increasing amounts of our time capturing images of marine wilderness in the highest resolution possible -- before these environments are simply gone. We hope OceanFootage.com will help make this pursuit profitable."
