Animated Interview with Jacques Cousteau

by

The talented folks at Blank on Blank recreated in animation a radio interview of Jacques Cousteau and made it a little more fun!

In 1978, Roy Leonard did a radio interview with Jacques Cousteau, the world-famous oceanographer, explorer and inventor. The talented folks at Blank on Blank recreated that interview in animation to give us a perspective of it that’s a little more suited for modern consumption.

Cousteau’s love of the ocean and passion to explore it drove the industry mainstream. He gave us insights into the ocean that we never dreamed possible at the time.  And even though he was 65 at the time of this interview, he was not noticeably slowing down. So come along on this fun, animated ride as we revisit a dive industry icon from an entirely new perspective.
