Children in the hospital will especially enjoy this footage. It’s not easy to be young and hospitalized.
We hope to provide a sense of comfort when children see the seals in a similar hospital setting.
We shot the video using specialised gear, including a camera with six lenses. We opted to film rescue seals as the water in their home – the Wadden Sea – is too dark and visibility isn’t great. Besides, it’s a real challenge to find so many curious seals in the wild.
Nevertheless, filming this special wasn’t easy. You can’t tell seals what to do or where to look.
Yet we still managed to present the viewer with a sense of interactivity when watching the film using VR-goggles.
There are some curious seals, so we managed to shoot some awesome scenes.
