Stan's filmmaking career was launched in 1965 when National Geographic purchased rights to his family's tropical odyssey in Tahiti In 1968 he collaborated with Peter Gimbel on the classic shark movie Blue Water, White Death, and then later directed underwater photography for the film version of The Deep It was during his ten years of production work with Peter Benchley for ABC's American Sportsman that he garnered five Emmy Awards (more than any other underwater filmmaker)
