1. In spring 1993 I was an intern in Kewalo Basin Marine Mammal Laboratory (KBMML).

    For over thirty years, KBMML pioneered studies of the sensory, cognitive, and communicative capacities of its resident dolphins. These studies revealed how dolphins perceive their world through hearing, vision, and echolocation, the depth and breadth of their intellectual potential, and the mechanisms and processes that contribute to their social life and social world.

    Between 1970 and 2004, KBMML was home to some of the world's most educated dolphins. Groundbreaking discoveries with these dolphins include abilities for language comprehension, vocal and behavioral imitation, "imaging" of objects through echolocation, interpretation of television displays and scenes, understanding of human pointing and gaze cues, and evidence of self-awareness.

    The internship was an amazing experience for me in many aspects, living in Hawaii, studding and interacting with the dolphins, and the unique opportunity to meet a bunch of amazing people.

    I created this movie in an attempt to capture some of the lab magical moments.

    For the people who where there I hope the movie will bring back some great memories of the dolphins, the lab and all related activities.. the office, the fish room, Adams’ boxes, the parties, the volleyball on the beach… and the people…

    For those who you how haven’t been there.. Hope this can give you a clue of how much fun we had :-)
