Animal Planet’s captivating documentary series shows the story of Sea Shepherd and their yearly conflict with the Japanese whaling industry in the Southern Ocean. It’s high drama on the high seas, with several vessels of different sizes, speeds and purposes, a rotating cast of passionate activists, and sometimes risky direct-action maneuvers. Out on the open water near Antarctica, the harsh conditions present challenging situations for capturing the enormity of the impacts, waves, storms and swells, not to mention overcoming the noise inherent in such hostile environments. Levels Audio restores the damaged audio from speedboats, waves crashing into microphones, unstable radio communication, and a host of other unpredictable forces. The resulting mix removes the distracting artifacts of the technology and tells the compelling story in a compelling, immersive way.
