Water Born is the brainchild of Marc Kaiser (president and CEO of Precision Health Care), Kirk Krack (president and founder of Performance Freediving International) and Goh Iromoto (award-winning director/cinematographer). The objective is simple: to combine the key elements of adventure, freediving and creativity to create a program that will open the eyes of people of all ages worldwide to the unique environment that exists underwater. 

The first season consists of three web-based episodes, each approximately 8 minutes long and to be released on YouTube & Facebook, wherein the Water Born team ventures to the Bahamas and Mexico to showcase an underwater fight scene amidst sharks, the surreal waterscape of the cenotes, and the search for the enormous whale shark.

In each episode, the team creates an artistic short film, all within the realm of breath hold. The stories all involve characters on breath hold and, for the most part, the entire film crew is on breath hold as well. Each episode begins with a 5- to 6-minute look at the behind-the-scenes trials of filming the creative short-film pieces, whether it’s safety or filming logistics. We reveal the fruits of our labors, a 2-minute art film, at the very end of each episode.

So get ready to fuel your imagination and join the team as they venture into beautiful underwater realms to create some of the most unique and captivating short films ever imagined. This is Water Born. Check out behind the scene as well as final edit below.
