  • MISSION PREDATOR MAKES ITS SHARK WEEK DEBUT

    Monday 11 December 2017

    Showrunner Productions’ film, MISSION PREDATOR,  aired during Shark Week as part of GREAT AUSTRALIAN BITESS - a one hour special hosted by marine biologist Lucas Handley, that features five unique short films produced in Western Australia.

    Mission Predator follows passionate marine-men and tech-heads Ryan Chatfield, Johnny Debnam, and Andre Rerekura on an incredible ocean adventure. 

    In a world first, these deep-sea wranglers create, design, build and test a unique experiment dubbed ‘The Subsea Heart Simulator’ to try to understand whether sharks can detect the electrical impulse of our beating hearts. 

    Along with skipper Ash Sutton, the seasoned divers put sharks through their paces in an exciting and fast-paced journey of discovery, off Western Australia’s remote Abrohlos Islands.

    The project was a Discovery Networks and ScreenWest joint production initiative.
