For the past few years, the folks at Mallinson Sadler Productions have been producing factual programs for various broadcasters all over the world, most notably for National Geographic’s hit series Drain the Oceans. Dedicated to the concept of “clever pleasure,” MSP certainly continues to draw on that theme with its latest effort, The Myth of the Pacific Pirate Ship, the fourth episode in the series’ sixth season. In it, archeologists uncover a 250-year-old shipwreck in the Pacific, leading to a long-forgotten trade route in the region.
For the episode, which premiered on March 26th, Atlantic was able to provide production support throughout multiple shoot days in Oregon. Our crew assisted folks that Mallinson Sadler flew in from the UK to capture key interviews and b-roll at the Columbia River Maritime Museum and Short Sand Beach.
Check out the show today on National Geographic, and if you ever need to salvage a video production in the U.S. or Canada – we do indeed have the sea charts that lead to the keys to an excellent shoot.
