A message from the GM:

2020 shook the world. Just over a year ago the rumblings of a new virus reached our shores, and we began to speculate what impact it would have on all our lives.

Leaders took alternate stances; balancing economic and social liberties with life and death. We witnessed the devasting power of nature, civil unrest and deepening socio-political divides.

Fuelled by political ambitions, the influence of the media and the power of tech giants, we debated the boundaries of free speech, censorship, and the paradox of tolerance.

All against the backdrop of the tragic COVID-19 statistics that dominate our screens.

Yet through the apparent chaos, shine the amazing stories of everyday heroes in healthcare and communities, major scientific breakthroughs to combat disease, advances in space exploration and the decline of global carbon emissions.

The story of 2020 is one of the most profound in recent history and will impact our lives forever.

For the good, the bad and everything in between, you tell these stories to inform and entertain. At Screenocean we appreciate helping you to find the right footage so you can tell them the way you do best.

We wish you all the best for a brighter 2021.

Thank you,
