In the 2010 Oscar-winning Best Documentary Feature film The Cove, the film's director Louie Psihoyos describes on-screen the film's approach and activist goals in documenting the slaughter of dolphins in Japan's Taiji: "There was two parts to the mission. The first one was to get the auditory experience. . . . The second mission, what we call the full orchestra," involved installing numerous cameras and microphones underwater and around the cove in which the slaughter took place. "I wanted to have a three-dimensional experience," Psihoyos then explains in voice-over, "with what's going on in that lagoon. I wanted to hear everything that the dolphins were doing, everything that the whalers were saying. The effort wasn't just to show the slaughter.
