Film Company Students Grace Gadston and Marco Maretto, followed a team of Ban's Diving Resort Volunteers as they participated in September's Save Koh Tao, Beach and Underwater Clean Up Event. The event is organized by Save Koh Tao and held once a month. All the local dive schools participate, taking ownership for a strip of land or beach and underwater area. The initiative, also ties in and works towards the goals of the Project AWARE Marine Debris awareness campaign. This piece formed part of Marco and Grace's training on the PADI Pro Underwater Cinematography Course, here they where specifically looking at the skills of pre production and planning as well as learning the skills of recording live events. Well done to Grace and Marco on their excellent work and a massive thanks to all the Participants including Ban's organizers Marcel Van De Burgh, Lee Nightingale and Poli Nahum.
