This film features the wonderful camerawork of Ron Taylor.

Taylor had worked with The Commonwealth Film Unit on a number of films and his work was well regarded here and overseas.

Perhaps best known for his work on filming sharks, including for Steven Spielberg's Jaws (1975), this film shows that his interest was in the whole marine environment, especially the Great Barrier Reef.

Taylor frequently worked alongside his wife Valerie, a champion diver and spear fisher in her own right who was similarly knowledgeable about sharks and marine life.

This film also features a musical score composed by Don Burrows.
