IAN SHIVE, DIRECTOR AND CINEMATOGRAPHER
Ian Shive is an American filmmaker and photographer whose work documents some of the world’s most pristine environments and brings to the public important conservation stories from around the globe. “Hidden Pacific” features the vibrant marine national monuments in the far reaches of the Pacific Ocean — thriving ecosystems filled with colorful coral reefs, large colonies of birds, and threatened species that depend on these habitats for survival. A recipient of the Sierra Club’s Ansel Adams Award for Conservation Photography, Shive’s photographic work has appeared in numerous media outlets and environmental programs, and he is the author of three photography books that celebrate American national parks and outdoor adventure.
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
For “Hidden Pacific,” the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and Tandem Stills + Motion, Inc. partnered on a multi-platform initiative to educate and inspire the public about these remote marine national monuments in the Pacific Ocean. As part of this effort, USFWS provided critical access to these protected areas in addition to on-the-ground support from scientists and refuge managers. The USFWS, along with their partners, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and various other organizations, is responsible for managing these monuments. The filming was an extraordinary undertaking, never before attempted by USFWS, to showcase these important monuments and help the public connect with them. As part of America’s public land system, including the National Wildlife Refuge System, these lands and waters have never been shared on this scale. It is an intimate look at an unparalleled resource located in one of the most remote locations of the United States.
National Parks Conservation Association
For 100 years, the National Parks Conservation Association has worked to protect and preserve our nation’s most iconic and inspirational places for future generations. NPCA is proud to partner with Tandem Stills + Motion during its centennial year and will feature “Hidden Pacific” in its ongoing efforts to educate the public about protected places — both on land and at sea — and advocate for their preservation.
