Inspired by the Greek sea goddess Amphitrite, a young production team based out of Basel, Switzerland have produced a mesmerizing new short film entitled ‘Amphitrite -- Underwater Goddess.’

In Greek mythology, Amphitrite became a companion to Poseidon and was deeply influenced by him. Many poets referred to her as a symbolic representation of the sea. This short film aims to recreate the essence of Amphitrite through the art of underwater cinematography. The five meter-long orange dress in the film was designed by Patrick Sonberger and suits the Amphitrite theme perfectly.

The Amphitrite -- Underwater Goddess video brings together the elements of fire and water represented by the combination of a sea horse and a dragon, which can be seen at the end of the film.
