Hydro Motion Media was set up by director Thomas Daguerre, a keen zoologist, dive instructor and underwater cameraman. Built on experience in practical conservation, scientific research and media over the last 10 years it now is a platform for a collection of contributors and we work alongside some of the most active conservationists, film makers and dive centres in Cornwall.
Film making and photography are fundamental in raising awareness, a picture speaks a thousand words and films can often get through to people in a way that other methods cannot. Noticing the impact that media can have on people when addressing issues such as the environment, Hydro Motion Media was born. Firstly, as an expression of film making, respect, and awe for the ocean, but ultimately to try and educate people and raise awareness of the fantastic marine environment that we have in the Cornwall and the UK.
The ethos behind the company is to provide affordable media resources to aid conservation and education. To meet our community investment commitment we must record our activities and show how we have benefited the community. Our main goals are to aid discovery and conservation in Cornwall benefiting the wider UK's marine conservation efforts.
We are consultant film-maker for local and national conservation organisations such as Natural England The Cornwall Wildlife Trust and the umbrella organisation, The Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts. RSWT encompass the whole of the UK and Northern Ireland and we are very grateful to them for their support and belief in what we are doing. We also have good relationships with many dive centers in Cornwall and around the world.
We believe it is by working together that we become stronger, have the ability to make a difference and see change. If interested in becoming involved in our work or would like to talk about a project to promote your organisation please contact us.
