  1. Hello, I would like to know the difference between cinematographer and lighting director. what is the delineation of roles and job title. Which countries use the title "Lighting Director" as opposed to cinematographer/gaffer/Chief lighting technician ?
  2. Hey Dan Kessler, Thank you for replying to my post and clarifying things for me. I appreciate that. I will shoot the effects separately. But am i good for the water tank technique where i should from outside the tank? Or is there something you suggest i try? Or even add to the existing technique that would add to it? Thank you for all your help. Cheers.
  3. Hello, i am currently prepping for a music video and there are quite a considerable number of shots that require a female and male model to be immersed in water. It is similar in effect o the music video "No Ordinary Love" by the band Sade. You can check it out here. However, we do not have the budget or the equipment for underwater photography. However, i was thinking of shooting from outside a water tank big enough to house the model and environment wit ha lighting setup; yet to be determined because of variable frame rates. The image i want to film need to be similar to these. My concern is... 1) filming tighter shots without diving in with a camera housing as none exist in Pakistan, where i am based. My answer was to move the model closer to the class for those shots or use longer lenses. 2) Adding a cloud tank element within the shot to make the environment more harsh. I am less worried about this , but wanted opinions regarding safety, and/optical issues arising because of mixing two special effects techniques.
