From the highest mountains to the darkest depths and every facet in between, the ocean intertwines with our daily lives and the world surrounding us.

"Shaped by Water" delves into this profound connection between humans and water in its different natural forms. We bring this story to life through the eyes of some of the world’s most inspiring athletes.

They say the ocean connects us all, but what does that really mean? For many of us, the first time we set eyes on the ocean is a moment we remember throughout our lives. In this short documentary, we invite you to embark on a journey alongside the individuals who thrive in the ocean's embrace and work tirelessly to restore balance to our relationship with it.

Shaped by Water
Steve Benjamin, filmmaker:

"It's a beautiful piece of poetry that pays homage to the water cycle and if it helps people connect with it, then I’ll consider my job done.”

Shaped by Water

Steve Benjamin, filmmaker “I really want people to fall in love with the ocean, to appreciate it more, and to try to alter their behavior around it. Everything ends up in the ocean, and it’s such a dumping ground for humanity. My hope is that people see the ocean as a living entity that needs to be protected.”
