Originally founded by Robert Unvert to produce content for deep-sea fishing expeditions in 1985, OceanWatch has become the leading full service television, production and distribution company with a unique appreciation and understanding of the youth and action market. With over 20 years of experience, we have worked with a variety of clients ranging from adventure, adrenaline, MMA and action sports brands to Fortune 500 companies and advertising and PR agencies. Our in-house team of forward-thinking producers, writers, videographers and editors pride themselves on delivering productions that not only leave our clients happy, but also leave an emotional connection with viewers.
While Founder Robert Unvert passed away in 2001, his pursuit for perfection and his fun loving spirit lives on in every production.
Robert Unvert originally started OceanWatch to become the leading content production company for deep-sea fishing expeditions. We were the original film commissioners for Catalina Island, collecting over 2,000 hours of footage over the course of 11 years. For us, the ocean has always been a deep part of our lives and one of our favorite forms to film. It’s not only provided the perfect training ground for being able to produce content in any environment, but for us the ocean represents a place with endless possibilities, ultimate chaos, and yet perfect flows. We’d say that’s sort of our approach to production. We’re good at taking chaotic ideas and turning them into final productions that flow seamlessly and simply.
B-Roll distribution is one of our core capabilities. We have contacts at over 450 of the leading news stations, and we work with strategic partners to assist with television and/or interactive distribution on the East and West coasts. Our team of dedicated news “pitchers” calls targeted lists within the top 75 markets (nearly 400 stations total). Beyond having personal relationships with many news,sports, business, and lifestyle editors, we also have relationships with news feed services for domestic networks like NBC, CBS, CNN, AP and EPTN. Global distribution is also available.
It depends on each package, but with a great story, we can get 40 million impressions or more in the U.S.
National VNR’s can result in publicity dollars up to an average of $3,000,000 and ad equivalency dollars of $1,200,000.
We also have strategic partners to help with global distribution.
Beyond being nice and incredibly fun to work with, we’re a full service, one-stop-shop.

From script writing to location scouting, and all the filming, editing and distribution, our in-house team brings years of experience to every project.
