Brynne Rardin is an underwater filmmaker, divemaster, and certified drone pilot, who is currently an Environmental Filmmaking Master in Fine Arts (MFA) candidate at American University in Washington D.C. She is also the owner and designer of OFAUNA, a sustainable and inclusive rashguard brand, working to educate people on a global scale about the immense need for ocean and marine life protection.​


Brynne spent her first few years after college working on liveaboard dive boats in the Caribbean, guiding guests diving with tiger sharks and great hammerheads in the Bahamas, and snorkel trips to see North Atlantic humpback whales in the Silver Bank, Dominican Republic.  It was during this time that she became fascinated with how her underwater videography had the ability to make the ocean accessible and inclusive for all who viewed  her work.


​In 2021, Brynne spent a year as a restoration and media fellow for Coral Restoration Foundation (CRF).  While there, she created the most viewed reel for CRF's instagram page with 40 million views. Brynne also honed her skills as a diver and filmmaker, assisting with coral restoration field work both within coral nurseries and restoration field sites and filmming and producing Intro to Coral Restoration, a short film for CRF’s new online academy. She assisted in establishing the Elkhorn gene bank at NOVA Southeastern University and constructed the eighth coral nursery for CRF at Looe Key.  


As a professional filmmaker, Brynne uses film to connect people to the ocean in ways that allow them to learn directly from the environment in an effort to facilitate global action towards protecting and preserving our Blue Planet.
