Growing up in and around the water, Joe Romeiro developed a love for the ocean at a young age. After seeing his first shark when he was just 5 years old, he has been captivated by them ever since. A self-taught filmmaker, Joe founded 333 Productions in 2007 with fellow producer & shark conservationist Bill Fisher. Since then, 333 Productions has produced several award-winning films, including “Silent Requiem”, “Death of A Deity”, “A Lateral Line” and “Shark Culture”.
333 Productions has received numerous awards for their work, including the prestigious Blue Ocean Film Fest’s “Emerging Underwater Filmmaker Award” and “Best New Cinema,” the ADEX “Underwater Video Of The Year Award,” Ocean Geographic’s Award for “Conservation Excellence,” Wildlife Conservation Film Festivals Award for “Education”, Beneath The Waves “Best In Cinematography,” and many others.
Other notable achievements: 333 Productions received the “Ocean Inspiration Award” from a panel of esteemed judges and industry professionals in a competition sponsored by Celine Cousteau. The video honored the life of her Grandfather, Jacques Cousteau.
In 2012, Joe made his debut appearance on Discovery Channel’s SHARKWEEK, appearing in “How JAWS Changed The World” as on-camera talent, as well as underwater cinematographer for the episode. Also in 2012, 333 Productions was asked by Shark Savers conservation organization to collaborate on a video tribute to the late Peter Benchley, author of JAWS. It combined Joe’s mesmerizing footage of Great White sharks, along with the words and conservation message of Peter Benchley. As 333 Productions continue their quest to travel the world capturing images of sharks in ways that no one else has, they continue their mission: to help protect sharks by educating & dispelling the myths surrounding them.
