This movie won’t be broadcasted on TV.
Talk-show and series are more profitable…
This movie won’t buy аdult websites .
There would be no sex in it.
But love only…
This movie won’t be sponsored by film studios.
They are working hard on zombie movies…
The only opportunity due to which it can be realized - is your participation!

Ocean…

We admire its beauty though we tremble from its hugeness.
From the beginning of mankind history we use it as the source of food and travel, which interconnects continents and civilizations.
In 21st century we tend to think that our civilizations can be comprehended and they are subject to the power of nature.
Dry land, atmosphere, outer space…
However, the ocean is something totally different.
It’s the source and cradle of life on the Earth.
And each of us, even the people who live thousands kilometers away from the coast line, people who only see water in a form of snow or on the vessel bottom pulled from deep draw well in a desert, tied directly with ocean by unseen thread since billions of years.
Because the blood flowing in our body is based on ocean water.
Boundless Ocean lives with its life, which is hidden from our eyes in its spaciousness and depths.
And even the biggest and most advanced our ships sometimes turn into toys in its hands.
Whoever could find the harmony with this element can come to it with the hope that father-ocean will recognize its child and award him with freedom and happiness.

Woman…

Our life thread passes right through her.
It’s she who feeds us with elixir of life from primeval ocean, awards with life and continues it in our children.
It’s the ocean in waters of which the sacrament of life conception occurs, in which hands we come into this world.
It’s the universe, from which we went out and into which we are striving to continue ourselves.
It’s undiscovered element that can give an inconceivable award or ruin us.
Being same as an ocean, she is opened only for one who will love and accept her into his heart.
But also like an ocean, she will always be full of riddles and totally undiscovered.

What would happen if two worlds will meet?
The ocean that never saw a woman…
The woman that never saw an ocean?

I want to see and capture this moment.
And I want to share it with you.

The way.

Four years ago for the first time in life I was on the Atlantic Ocean coast…
Me and my team (me, two assistants and four model girls) arrived to Tenerife to capture few short underwater movies.
The seas I saw: Baltic, Caspian, Black, Azov, Mediterranean, Aegean, Adriatic, Baikal…
They all are different. Each of them has its own character, color and each of them is beautiful in its own way.
And I thought that the Ocean is just a big sea. To be more precise, I didn’t think exactly so.
I just was expecting new impressions.
It turned out that I was not ready for meeting it.
I still don’t know whether it was good or bad?
Because the Ocean stunned and amazed me!
It changed me.

First pre-preception

It’s already happened in a plane, while we were flying over Gibraltar and started doubling Africa.
The weather was fair, with rare clouds that were far away beneath us.
There was an Atlantic Ocean though….

Colour.

Strange blue.
Without any hue. In the shade of clouds it was pure purple.
I reassured myself that everything beneath looks different from the height.
But some strange and subtle sensation has come on mind and stayed as background for my thoughts about baggage, bus that will greet us, hotel check-in, documents and hundreds other small things that need to be controlled during a travel…
Airport, passport control, baggage claim, people, car parking, bus, loading.
Finally we departure from the airport and driving on a highway.
Rocks, trees, buildings…
Here it’s is, on the right, in a space gap between buildings there was a blue flashing. The road was getting closer and closer to the coast line.
And suddenly after the last buildings and palms, ocean appeared.
It was exactly same blue color as it was from the skies!
This colour didn’t change!
This colour is indivisible!
It’s one of the main colours. Absolutely clear and deep.
And alive.
It’s impossible to reproduce it using paint nor using photography, neither (unfortunately) using video..
Only on the line of breakers it become lighter because of the air bubbles and across through all hues of sky blue colour, disappeared in white foam.
But there were few more amazements!

Smell.

This stroke me down when we got out of air-conditioned bus (it’s still hot in November on Canary islands) and wind touched me that was blowing from the ocean side.
There were not any mixtures in it, which are added by civilization. Clear, powerful, the one that came from unimaginable spaciousness of primeval life desert.
And again fuss, ferry, rolling, smell of engine diesel, bus, hotel, tiredness, sleep.
The whole next day was spent in organizational activities. I couldn’t get close to the ocean, even though it was surrounding us with its breath all of the time, it was close.

Third day

was the first day of shooting. We jumped on the boat and swam under the sail.
Only in here I could quietly sit and look around. The wind was strong, boat was fast - diving and jumping over the waves.
If you would look towards the coast line it seems like you are flying in scaleless space, turning into the big and small like an atom.
After two hours we arrived to destination, prepared equipment and I was the first who put on flippers, diving mask and stepped into the water.
And only here, right in that moment, everything turned clear and got in its place!
Colour. Taste of air…

Touch.

Feeling the Ocean on your skin.
It was a synthesis. I turned into another man.
Next five days almost were an uninterrupted happiness.
I spent 6-8 hours in water every day.
The ocean accepted and supported me.
In the same time I couldn’t think that we can be on the same level.
Ocean has revealed and presented to me the universe, unknown until that time. Inside and around me…
We were working out compulsory program in accordance with client’s scenario.
While shooting the model, which were moving under the water, by diving together with them I saw that they are also experiencing some feelings.
They also feel the Ocean in their own way.
There was has something intimate in that.
Something that I can observe like man, but can’t totally understand.
Right in that moment I had starting idea of movie where two worlds meet.
Meet of Ocean and Women.

after four years, that idea is ready for realization and I feel myself ready to start movie shooting.

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to realize it in home-video style that is captured on backyard pool. :)
That’s why I have started the project in here.
I really hope that this movie will be realized with your help.
