  1. I have a script that would require a nighttime scene were the principle actor would fall into the water when jumping from one moving boat to another moving boat. The water must appear to be moving (5-10 knots), with a single wake from a passing boat causing the fall. Since safety is paramount, I would think shooting in a water tank would be best. So, what water tanks are available for filming in the United States. Will the described scene required special facilities? Are there specialized production crews that do this type of work? Any ballpark estimates on how much this would cost? Any ideas to minimize expenses? Thanks.
  2. Hey guys, so I have a shoot that requires a shot at the bottom of the ocean. I wont have access to a tank but I may have access to an aquarium (a very big one lol) I can easily make it pass for ocean. however! ive never shot similar and im wondering what lighting ill need to replicate a bit of sun coming through the water in the lower angle shots. the aquarium is 11m deep. Is there a rule for falloff in water? thanks ! K
  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.
