With heavy hearts, we are extremely sad to say that our leader and founder, Burke Beardsley passed on recently without warning. We will honor his legacy by continuing Marine Filmworks far into the future and treat every project as if Burke was still at the helm. Thank you, the Team at Marine Filmworks
