Ocean Vet Series To Begin Filming Tomorrow
Thursday, March 20, 2014

Filming for the highly anticipated marine life series Ocean Vet is set to begin in Bermuda tomorrow [Mar 21], with a 12-part documentary planned as the end result.

A spokesperson said, “UK-based gassProductions is pleased to announce the filming of Ocean Vet, a 12-part action-packed documentary series following Dr. Neil Burnie as he explores the marine species around the island of Bermuda.

“Filming will take place on the island from March 21 to April 20, 2014 and again from June 7 to September 30, 2014. The series has been pre-sold to Cineflix Rights, a division of Cineflix Media Inc. and a leading, independent UK television content distributor to be broadcast worldwide in 2015.


“We are so excited to begin filming on the island,” said Andrew Smith, Series Producer and Director. “This series is being produced with Bermuda in mind. I am very familiar with the island as I have family here; however, the majority of people I speak to around the world know very little about Bermuda and we hope to change that. In addition, we have engineered the production to employ skilled locals, use local assets and source local series investment.”

“Ocean Vet is a factual series set in Bermuda documenting the exploits of English veterinarian Dr. Neil Burnie, a man on a mission to conserve and protect Bermuda’s precious marine wildlife.

“Dr. Burnie will be transferring his veterinary skills to help 11 threatened marine species in Bermuda and, alongside a specialist team, he will gather data in a bid to ensure their future. The breathtaking and thrilling series delves into a stunning underwater world teeming with life, bringing the viewer closer than ever to sharks, whales, lion fish, grouper, turtles and more.


“Neil’s enthusiasm is truly infectious and his ‘hands-on’ invasive conservational approach to some of the most incredible and dangerous marine animals makes for captivating viewing,” said Mr. Smith.

“We thank the Bermudian organisations and individuals who have financially backed this project thus showing their commitment to Bermuda and showcasing the beauty the island has to offer.”

“We are thrilled to welcome gassProductions to the island for the filming of Ocean Vet,” said Bermuda Tourism Authority CEO Bill Hanbury.

“Not only will the series generate worldwide positive exposure about Bermuda, but also it will bring about awareness to the important cause of conserving the exquisite marine environment that makes this island such a special destination.”


Ocean Vet investors include Hiscox Re, The Atlantic Conservation Partnership, PartnerRe, James Gibbons, Spencer Butterfield and Henrik Schroder.
