SYNOPSIS

Envoy: Shark Cull is a fascinating, deeply moving documentary narrated by Eric Bana, which sheds light on the real story behind the coastal ‘shark safety’ programs in Queensland and New South Wales. The current methods of baited drum-lines and nets have not only been scientifically proven to be ineffective in protecting swimmers and surfers, leaving them at risk in the sea, but these outdated solutions continue to be allowed to negatively impact entire marine ecosystems—including the Great Barrier Reef. Thousands of whales, dolphins, turtles, and other marine life are just some of the casualties of these expensive, archaic methods every year, even though new and proven technology is easily accessible.

Join some of the biggest names in ocean conservation, such as Sea Shepherd, Ocean Ramsey and Madison Stewart, who bring their in-depth knowledge and expertise to shed light on this scarcely understood topic.

MEET THE DIRECTOR

ANDRE BORELL
DIRECTOR, PRODUCER, ENTREPRENEUR, OCEAN CONSERVATIONIST
Andre Borell is co-founder of The Hype Project and Producer and Director of Envoy: Shark Cull. Andre has had a passion for photography and videography from a young age, from jerry-rigging handycams to mountain bike helmets and go-karts, to building underwater camera housings as a teenager. He is a successful entrepreneur who has grown multiple businesses in various industries. Andre co-founded The Hype Project in 2018 with a single goal in mind - to make films that matter. Andre’s inspiration for Envoy: Shark Cull started in 2014 during the WA shark cull. This inspiration continued to grow as the QLD and NSW culls continued, even after the WA cull was abandoned, with little to no public scrutiny. Andre fulfilled various roles and worked endless hours on the production of Envoy: Shark Cull, driven by an unwavering creative vision and burning desire to facilitate change.
