Sea Fever

Conceptualised by Ogilvy, Cape Town, and directed by Velocity’s Tristyn von Berg, NSRI’s ‘Sea Fever’ is a haunting and beautiful ode to our love of the Sea. Set to a reading of John Masefield’s 1901 poem ‘Sea Fever’, the film explores an understanding of a latent natural wonder. Tristyn leads us back to our most treasured experiences, reminiscing in the power and splendor of the Sea, all the whilst having gratitude that the NSRI are always out there. Everybody who worked on the production did so at no charge.

Song: “The First Days of Spring” written and recorded by Noah and the Whale.
Executive Creative Director: Chris Gotz Agency Producer: Cathy Day Agency Art Director: Justin Enderstein Copywriter: Cuan Cronwright
Production Company: Velocity Films Director: Tristyn von Berg
