  1. I bought this for my fifth graders. In fifth grade we learn all about energy and how the sun provides energy for all living things on Earth. My students were absolutely blown away that geothermal heat could be the source energy for living things as well. I showed this video in the last two weeks of school, and students created an energy pyramid to reflect the hydrothermal vent environment. My video had a very good educational “extra feature” with science demonstrations that explained concepts students needed to know to understand hydrothermal vent environments. Awesome, awesome enrichment tool. I will be looking for more videos from this producer. Please comment if you know any…

  2. This… on HDTV… is just like in an IMAX! I’m an earth science teacher, and I can tell you this mesmerized the class. In fact, it’s great for life science as well.

  3. This is a film whose strength lies mostly in its first-class imagery. The high definition underwater film coupled with the excellent CG sequences create a very unique and intimate look at life on the hydrothermal vents. If you are new to this ecosystem, you will be truly amazed and taken aback at how alien it is. But for those who are already somewhat familiar with hydrothermal and chemosynthetic ecosystems, you won’t be learning anything new. The film is fairly light on information, preferring to dazzle the viewer with closeup looks at the vents and impressive computer generated scenes.

  4. I saw this feature at our local IMAX and as soon as it was released on DVD I had to have it! Volcanoes of the Deep Sea features footage of some VERY cool invertebrates living DEEP under water at hot vents on the sea floor. Ed Harris does a great job narrating. I wish these IMAX features were longer!

  5. First class adventure beneath the sea at depths and sea floors which are truly an “other” world…..but not. Stunning visual wonders, facts and information about our current world and a wonderful adventure into the amazing world of our earth’s past. See it for yourself. Words are pale imitations.
