Shark Bay Films was established 20 years ago as an underwater film production company, and we have produced over 20 underwater documentary films that have sold to television stations worldwide and won multiple international awards.
Over the past decade the company has diversified into many different fields and we have an extremely wide ranging corporate clientele both in the UK and worldwide. All our filming and editing is High Definition – our harbour side studio in West Cornwall is equipped with two HD edit suites plus full DVD authoring facility.
And our prices are surprisingly reasonable and realistic – no job is too big or too small for us.

John Boyle has become recognised as one of the planet’s top underwater cameramen. Eight of our documentaries have sold to National Geographic as well as SKY and many other prestigious national broadcasters. We have a very substantial stock footage library

John Boyle is author of the definitive book “A Step by Step Guide to Underwater Video.” John and Fionn are fully HSE certified and we have a 7 metre RIB and a 10 metre motor cruiser available for water based projects.
We have produced corporate films for companies as diverse as international airlines, helicopter companies, care homes and medical equipment manufacturers; we have made music videos and specialist films such as in flight safety films and medical training DVDs. We have even filmed and produced the last three successful election campaigns for the government and President of an Indian Ocean nation. A current project is producing a film for the National Trust about the Cornish Mining World Heritage region. A full list of our corporate clients is attached.
Working closely with many of the UK’s top surfers as well as with Carve magazine, Rip Curl and O’Neill, we have produced many surfing related projects both in the UK and abroad. One of the UK’s top waves is right outside our Porthleven studio. In addition to Cornwall, our projects have taken us to destinations including the Mentawais, Ireland, Costa Rica and the Azores. Fionn and Eddie are both skilled surfers and water cameramen.
