The Shark Hunters: Film

Madison Stewart

In 2016 I spent time with ‘Mark the Shark’ and ‘Vic Hislop’, two infamous shark hunters.

I managed to sit down with and interview both, and join Mark for a day on his boat. This is the film I created about my interactions with the two men. Shark hunters represent an archaic approach to fear, but shaming them in an Instagram post is not going to change them.

If we want to help sharks, we need to approach things and people without hatred through knowing your enemies you win half the battle.

The film consists of an intro, Mark’s interview, then Vic’s interview then a conclusion which includes footage of grey nurse sharks, a great example of this archaic mentality… great nurse were hunted to near extinction despite being one of the non harmful species of shark, this was one of the first war on sharks from humans in Australia, they are now protected.
