GET FEROXED !

Hi everyone,

After almost 7 years of trading, it was time for a shakeup, to step forward, review and simplify, where possible.

So we did

It was felt that our original name, Surface Interval Productions, was long and a little clumsy and that not having matching email address, YouTube channels and Facebook pages, was a potential long term negative.

So we spent months, YES MONTHS!, trawling trough possible names, related to our business, trying to find meaning and then checking to see if there was still a .com domain name available. We had not realized just how much of a challenge this would be. Try it yourself, every desirable name has been registered. Even if they are not currently in use by someone, they are registered and for sale, at ridiculous prices too.

In the end and with some heavyweight consulting on board, thanks Peter Thomas for your inspiration and guidance, we came upon the name "FEROXED".

"Why FEROXED? What on earth does it mean? I cant find the word anywhere, "...we hear you all saying.

WELL   ...........

FEROX is the Latin word for 'wild' , 'fierce' or 'savage' and that does relate to the film stock and productions that we are producing. So why not just FEROX then? Yes, you guessed it, already registered, so no .com domain name available. :-(

So "FEROXED" it is

It is not often that we get the opportunity to create a new word .......

Feroxedadjective The feeling of awe, resulting from or having been exposed to, the beauty of Nature. (Soon to be added to the Oxford dictionary) :-) Come on, lets make that happen!

Our hope is to imply that once you have viewed one of our productions, or purchased stock from our vast 4K and 6K library, 'you have been FEROXED' and are more aware of the wild beauty that surrounds us all.

The by line “Naturally Wild Films” speaks for itself and the new name, is just that, only a name. The holding company is still Surface Interval Production (PTY) LTD as before and all the old links will lead to the website, YouTube Channel, Facebook page etc.

Many thanks for all your support in the past years and hopefully your continued support into the bright future ahead of us all.

LEMBONGAN 2017

(Please note, highlighted words are active links with more information)

 

Returning to Lembongan and Blue Corner Dive with family and friends was such a special trip. The Stock footage we wanted was of the Mola Alexandrini (Mola Ramsayi) which we had not managed to obtain on our previous trip in 2015.

A huge thanks to Andrew, Cody, Steph and all the staff of Blue Corner for a great diving holiday. We are thrilled that our friends who furthered their dive training at the same time and we can highly recommend anyone who wants to learn to dive to get qualified with Blue corner dive.  The dive guides are professional, attentive and friendly.

The food at Blue Corner Bar was great. The menu is a great selection of meat and vegetarian dishes with a Mexican flair and even with our 3 week stay, we did not get bored of the yummy food. Do read our Blue Corner and other TripAdvisor reports for other eateries that we tried. Bali Eco Deli, Green Garden Warung, Bunga Bungalo and Blue Corner Bar and Restaurant.

 

Thank you to the The Coral Triangle Center, Wira Sanjaya and Andrew Taylor for allowing us to join them and film the installation of an acoustic receiver for their Mola protection project. We were not able to film any tagging and hope to return for that. We wish them all the very best in their inspiring conservation efforts. 

We were lucky to have three sunrise dives as well, looking for Mola and regardless of the water conditions and natural light availability, our trusted Keldan Flux cinema lights did a fantastic job once again. Whether we need fill in light for filming during the day or primary light for night dive filming, these Keldan beasts, now with over 300 dives under their belts, are powerful and reliable. Many thanks Daniel for your superior products and fantastic after sales service.

Diving with our favourite Dive Guide, Made p was fabulous. Yes, YAY!, we did get RAW 4K stock footage of  Mola Alexandrini (Mola Ramsayi)!  Not to mention the lovely encounters and stock we got of the Reef Mantas. Some of our dive party even saw a Whale shark.

Thank you for a grand diving trip.
