ABOUT THE FILM
Alyssa Harker, an 18-year-old dolphin researcher works with her famous scientist father Hawk on Grand Bahama developing a dolphin language. Beneath the Blue picks up where Eye of the Dolphin left off, showing Alyssa's powerful bond with the wild dolphin Rasca. Having assimilated to the island, the research center and the dad she never knew, Alyssa is now tested when she meets a somewhat mysterious tourist named Craig.

BENEATH THE BLUE features Paul Wesley, who stars in the smash CW hit television series “Vampire Diaries." He was recently named one of Cosmopolitan’s “Fun Fearless Males of 2010". Caitlin Wachs (Alysssa) was named one of People Magazine’s “20 Teenagers Who Will Change The World” and received the Young Star Award from The Hollywood Reporter. David Keith (Hawk) is currently starring in the new hit Fox TV Series “Lonestar”, and is best known for his work in “An Officer and a Gentleman” and “Behind Enemy Lines”. The majority of the shoot took place in the quaint, friendly town of Smith’s Point, Grand Bahama, where Director Michael D Sellers worked creatively intertwining the actors and story with the Bahamian community both on land as well as beneath the ocean. Sellers captured researched developments of human-dolphin interaction while bridging fictional elements with actual ongoing supreme court rulings.

Special Guests: Leah Eneas and Michael D. Sellers
