1. A rogue with an eye for salvage - and the ladies - Ray: A Life Underwater is an affectionate portrait of one man's deep sea diving career, told through his extraordinary collection of marine artefacts.

    Like a modern-day pirate, 75-year-old Ray Ives has been scouring the seabed for treasure his whole life.

    The former commercial diver has plundered the deep for over fifty years, bringing to the surface anything that glittered -- even gold.

    In a shipping container near the water, Ray tends his museum of cannon, bottles, bells, swords, portholes and diving gear.

    He even still takes to the water in a 1900s diving suit.

    Ray can be found most days at his museum at Yacht Haven Quay, Plymouth.

  5. I recently discovered an old Prinz Concord 800 slide projector accompanied with several slides of my older sister Rachel as a baby, photographed in 1970. This short film shows my attempt to capture something that is analogue and transfer it to a digital video medium in a not so ordinary way.
