About Us

Big Screen Marine’s filmography speaks for itself.  We have provided clients with excellent service for more than 20 years.  We use our expertise, personnel, equipment and longstanding industry relationships to ensure that every production company and studio that we work with has unique access to all marine-based aspects of film production.  Not only will we provide you with highly trained mariners that come with credentialed and unparalleled expertise in the film industry, but we will strive to exceed your expectations and do our best to tailor our services to meet your needs.  We are committed to reasonably priced, professional, safe, high-quality marine productions.

In addition to doing Marine Coordination, Big Screen Marine is sometimes hired as an outside vendor for other companies and provides expert consulting, personnel, and/or equipment.  Big Screen Marine played a role in every show listed on IMDB.com as well as many more not listed, but its role in those productions varies from show to show, based on the needs of the production team and existing staff.
