Discovery Channel worked with DUTCH PICTURE INDUSTRY for it’s first Dutch adventure commission: Mission Indian Ocean. A very challenging project because of the shear toughness and unpredictability of solo ocean rowing. DUTCH PICTURE INDUSTRY impressed us with their dedication, passion for outdoor adventure filming and their keen eye for telling an authentic story
