John Anderson, a veteran documentary filmmaker and Director of Terramar Productions, has spent nearly 40 years in the coastal and offshore marine environment, with 25 years dedicated to conducting marine-related film and video productions. As a naturalist, cinematographer and outdoorsman, Anderson has spent a considerable portion of his career collaborating with scientists on film projects, documenting scientific studies and capturing moving images of shy and often reclusive marine animals. His considerable experience and ability working within marine environments led to his accumulation of movie credits that include the large-format films Dolphins, Amazing Caves, Coral Reef, and Wild California, Hollywood feature-films including Master and Commander, Flipper, and Free Willy, and television documentaries such as National Geographic’s In Search of the I-52, In Search of Giant Bluefin and the Apollo Rocket recovery Project.

A few of his favorite team accomplishments are sailing around Cape Horn during the production of Master and Commander, living and working ship-board in the indo-Pacific during the production of Coral Reef Adventure and documenting the recovery of some of the Apollo Rocket engines on a deep water expedition in the Atlantic.
