11th August, 2020

“Onsight did a thoroughly professional job under very difficult circumstances. Remote working, fast cuts, complex archive management and a global lockdown are a heady mix.. but you’d never know this was anything other than a beautifully posted film.” - Martin Williams, Director

‘After a spate of fatal attacks in Western Australia, Dr Craig O’Connell and diver Marc Payne head to a nearby chain of islands. They discover a network of caves where sharks hunting in the shadows reveal themselves as the ultimate stealth hunters.’

Talesmith’s new film, directed and executive produced by Martin Williams, “Lair of the Great White” has been announced as one of a blockbuster line up for this August’s 2020 Shark Week on Discovery Channel.

On the south coast of Western Australia, the seaside town of Esperance is under siege by great white sharks. After two fatalities in just three years, locals believe their sharks behave more aggressively than anywhere else. In search of answers, Dr Craig O’Connell and local abalone diver Marc Payne head out to a nearby chain of islands to find out if the sharks learn to hunt differently here compared to populations in other parts of the world. 

They discover a population of highly inquisitive, sub-adult great whites and a network of caves where the sharks learn to hunt in the shadows, revealing themselves as the ultimate stealth hunters. Armed with cutting-edge technology and specially designed camouflage suits the team take on the sharks at their own game as they attempt to out-stealth the ocean’s greatest predator inside this great white lair.
