Cinematographers Nan Melville and Ted Ciesielski shot the footage. She combined the voice of Rakel Terceno, the guitar of Paul Jared Newman, sea sounds, and percussion by Rex Benincasa. Celia Gregory offered footage of her underwater sculptures which serve as coral reefs. Neurologist/artist Greg Dunn granted permission for his images of neurons. Christian Sardet offered images from his Plankton Chronicles project
