"Exuma" is a documentary film that uses innovative cinematography above and below the surface to highlight the surreal beauty of the Exuma Islands. The film was created by Colin Ruggiero who lives in Montana.

The Exumas are a string of small islands in The Bahamas. "Exuma" is the
first film to highlight the beauty of these remote "out islands." The film
is a view into this surreal world of sand, sky and water through the eyes
and thoughts of a young woman who lives there. Underwater and time-lapse imagery are used to show a side of the Exumas that few people, even those lucky enough to have visited, have ever seen.

"This film has been a project of passion for me and was done entirely by myself without funding or a crew. This includes the filming, editing, writing, color correction, graphics, production, etc.  Most of it was shot while freediving. The woman featured in the movie is Susanna Girolamo and she is the general manager of the Staniel Cay Yacht Club. Exuma will also feature a variety of music from various artists," said the filmmaker.

Synopsis: Prepare to hold your breath and dive into a thousand shades of blue on an exploration of the Exuma Cays – a tiny string of pearls tucked away in the middle of the 3,000 other islands that make up the Bahamas. Shot entirely in HD, the film uses innovative underwater and time-lapse photography to capture the surreal beauty of the Exumas through the eyes of a young woman who lives there. Through Susanna’s eyes, we are given a window into a world few people have ever seen. Welcome to Exuma.

The film will be released on both standard DVD and Blu-Ray in late 2012.
