32’ Hydrascope with the Amphibian Remote Head, filming recently on location Black Park – ‘Little Chaos’

The most important thing to know about this was it was WET very, very WET. As you can see in this video we had rain machines lashing water over the equipment. In this particular scene we had the Amphibian Remote head and the 32’ Hydrascope.

 

The camera itself, was in under-water housing, so they were able to completely submerge the camera if they wanted too. In this long scene, it was getting heavily splashed on the surface. With the Chapman equipment being waterproof this became a relatively straight forward scene to film.

 

During shooting, they had to keep adding pieces of set in and it was looking like we were going to have to raise the base of the crane up to clear the height of the set, but this is where the Hydrascope always comes into its own … instead we were able to raise the crane high enough using the hydraulic post so no need to waste any time.

 

This was a long scene and there was no reprieve from the water for the equipment – but for the whole shoot the Hydrascope and Amphibian head worked beautifully with no complaints about poor weather!
