Florian is a cinematographer, diver and environmental advocate. His cinematography assignments have taken him all around the world on world-class film productions including work for National Geographic and on the Blue Planet Series. He is currently initiating a project with the Port Townsend Marine Science Center on Octopus Learning for German Public Television.  Graner is a rebreather specialist: since 1995, this has given him a unique, bubble-free presence close to our skittish creatures. His DVD Under the Salish Sea is a comprehensive and inspiring journey through the 3-dimensional world of Puget Sound, filmed in the waters near Port Townsend. A 30-minute DVD, Return of the King, tells the story of the salmon-orca connection, while A Seal’s Life is the story of the remarkable elephant seal, who travel farther than any other mammal in their annual migration across the North Pacific. His web presence, SeaLife Productions, has a strong ethical mission. Florian is committed to using his work to bring issues to the public that would otherwise be difficult to visualize.
