Sea Peoples by William Benker
“Sea Peoples“ was produced six months into lockdown. I was looking ahead to a time when we might all be able to go outside again. The pandemic still seemed surreal at that time, similar to the way shark attacks in New England are surreal. After six months of quarantine I realized how much I wanted to see people.
Filming the scene in the ocean was the easiest to act. I kept thinking I might get attacked by a shark while acting like I was. This probably reflects my feelings towards the ocean.
