I've been very happily doing these quick Q&As for Seattle Met, working for my old colleague Matt Halverson, now the magazine's executive editor. It has been such a great opportunity to interview really fascinating people. For May, I talked to deep-sea diver and documentarian Dan Warter, who taught himself to film what he witnessed while navigating the abyss. Warter has a complicated relationship with diving; he's at a point in his life where he's not sure the benefits outweigh the risks. He experienced a friend die during one expedition, and recounted the story to me in detail. I was so impressed with his honesty and vulnerability—he seemed to just default to being open, which is such an admirable characteristic. I didn't have to space to tell that full story on the page, but hopefully we will be able to spin longer, online versions of the interviews in the future.
Keep up with Dan Warter's projects on the DCS Films website.
