UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHER
Paul Cater Deaton

"When I say that my business is 'going under,'" says filmmaker Paul Cater Deaton, "I say it with a big smile on my face!"

From his beginnings as a Movie Grip, Paul has become an award- winning Writer, Producer, Director and Cinematographer. His underwater production skills were honed in oceans and seas all over the world. His favorite work is producing and shooting documentaries relative to SCUBA diving and adventure travel. He is based in the Virgin Islands.

Shooting on six continents over a career spanning three decades, Deaton has earned numerous industry awards. His articles have been published worldwide, and his documentary work has been licensed by networks in Europe and Asia. His interpretation of 'Sol del Caribe' by Teye and Viva El Flamenco was named 'Best Music Video' at the 2004 Austin Music Awards at South by Southwest. His highly- acclaimed 'Brother' music video for rap artist FP was the first music video originating in the USVI to be aired on an MTV network. It earned a Gold Addy, and the Donald Plantz Award for Best of Show Video Production at the 2007 Virgin Islands Addy Awards.

Paul engages in productions ranging from commercials, music videos and documentaries to TV programs and full-length motion pictures. His work has appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, BBC, MTV, CMT, HBO, VH1, ESPN, Fox, Nickelodeon, Showtime, TV2 Caribbean, Austin Music Network, Warner Brothers, Paramount, Tri-Star, Veronica Broadcasting (The Netherlands), ARD German Television, Planete TV (Poland), Beatty Satellite (Saudi Arabia), Proxima (Bulgaria), Caribbean Broadcasting Union, the Travel Channel, DirecTV, Comedy Central, E! Entertainment TV, Bravo, Ocean in Google Earth, and at the United Nations.

Deaton was one of the original filmmakers approached to produce content for Ocean in Google Earth, which launched in February, 2009. Paul produced pieces for the Red Sea, Mediterranean, Western Indian Ocean, Great Barrier Reef, and Gulf of Mexico/Caribbean Sea focus areas. His perspectives bring unique insights to the project, and he has been asked to continue providing content for future versions.

It was during the Google initiative that he was introduced to Ray Hollowell, and thoughts of an alliance between these two producers was an immediate result.

"I am excited at the prospect of teaming up with Ray Hollowell and Plan Sea Entertainment," Paul said in a recent interview.

"Our philosophies are similar, and we are both committed to doing what we can to protect the ocean," Deaton continued. "Television and the internet are ideal platforms for getting a message of conservation across in an entertaining way. Working together, Plan Sea Entertainment, The Deaton Studio and others like us can help make a difference in the way humans treat the sea. By incorporating fun, educational programming geared toward young people, we can pave the way for future stewardship of the marine resource."
