While selecting scenes for some of my agents, I realized that in my last 3 months working in Lembeh Strait, I hadn't actually done anything with all of the 4K RED footage I shot other than my standard logging and organization. With over a thousand unused scenes to work with, I decided to make one last Lembeh film with some of those 4K scenes.
A note on the music used in this film: All pieces are by Kevin MacLeod. When it comes to soundtrack music for UW video, he totally rocks. I'd like to call your attention to the short piece that I used for the Coconut Octopus. It's titled "Umbrella Pants" and that's pretty descriptive of what an Octopus would wear.
I've just completed a slight re-edit of this film to get the run time under 10 minutes. I'm entering it in a film festival and all entries must be 10 minutes or less. After shortening the soundtrack, I also re-cut some of the sequences to make them a bit tighter. I was actually able to add some coral polyp scenes in one part of the video by shortening up the Ghost Pipefish scenes.
