Six days on the Monterey bay filming Sea Otters with NHK Japan T.V. was a great change of pace from the hustle and bussel of Los Angeles. Phil Sammet was our boat captain and local tour/ information guide about all things in and on the bay. We filmed great shots of a mother and cub going about the days activities of grooming, hunting for crabs, and trying out new menu options such as Planter worms,Squid, and Sea cucumbers. The camera man "Hedi'" was filming with a Proton high speed camera and was able to get some great slow motion footage of the young cub and mother swimming and eating together.
