Welcome to Terramar Productions llc

We are a full-service, digital media production company with capabilities ranging from initial conceptualization of a project through final client delivery. We currently feature tape-less HD and 4K workflows but our roots evolved through hi- and standard-definition videotape workflows, as well as film for small and giant screen theaters.

In addition to media production services, Terramar also offers an extensive media library of 4K, HD, and SD natural history, science, and industrial video footage from around the world. This moving image collection is available in our online library for preview/licensing with more than 12,000 video clips available for 24/7 viewing.

 We like to stay busy, and as leader in natural history, training, and commercial cinema production, we would like to make a movie for you.

Sandy Point - A Habitat we all Share

    

Sandy Point is an ecologically fragile, barrier island in Little Narragansett Bay. It provides important nesting and feeding areas for a variety of migratory birds.  Species such as the least tern, roseate tern, and the piping plover use the Island to nest, rear young, feed, and stage during migration. Terns and plovers were once common along the New England coast but increased development and recreational use of the remaining barrier beach and island habitat have contributed toward the decline of shorebird populations. Some species, such as the roseate tern and piping plover, have dwindled to dangerously low numbers.

The Island has long been a popular destination for recreational boating, kayaking and beach-goers, unfortunately, the period of high recreational use coincides with bird migration and nesting. In an effort to meet the wishes of the donors and achieve a balance between public access and the needs of wildlife, ALC is working in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Stewart B. McKinney National Wildlife Refuge, Partners for Fish and Wildlife Program, and Southern New England Coastal Program.

This video focuses on some of the early successful stories and the conservation efforts currently ongoing for the avian animal species that use sandy point. It also discusses some of the perils that they regularly encounter.

Dolphinaria:

 

an honest, behind the scenes look into the lives of dolphins in managed care.

For nearly 80 years, humans and select populations of dolphins have lived and played together, formed friendships and other bonds, and learned from one another. We know that dolphins are intelligent, social, and playful. We’ve also learned that they have personalities and are creative and that they communicate with each other and us. Much of what we understand about dolphins comes from these associations formed with the dolphins living in our midst. High standards for health care and husbandry, as well as daily enrichment in many forms, all contribute to the well being of each animal. Dolphinaria is an in-depth and honest, multi-episode, behind-the-scenes visit into the lives of dolphin populations in managed care. 

Goliaths in the Stream

“Goliaths in the Stream", introduces the public to the largest reef fish in the Caribbean.  Goliath Grouper are largely unknown by most people, hated by fishermen but loved by divers.  This iconic species neared extinction in the early 90s but has recovered to some extent.  Habitat loss and environmental issues still thwart their complete recovery but there may be hope.  Four years of shooting amazing visuals and expert on-camera interviews tell the story how it is.

Animal Creativity:

In recent years, creativity in animals has become a more accepted method to measure cognitive ability in humans, but not much is known, or understood, about creative behaviors in animals. It is possible that creativity could be used as a valuable tool to assess cognition in non-human species and allow for subsequent comparison of human to non-human thought processes. A direct comparison may provide insight on the evolution of cognitive abilities in humans by allowing scientists to understand which traits are shared and which are not.
