Underwater Filming Manchester
Underwater Filming Kit
Working and filming underwater can be an exiting but difficult way for film makers to achieve their vision. Specialist equipment is needed to get the job done. However, without the required skill and expertise the shoot can be costly and time consuming. Aside from this, Health and Safety and Legal issues can be a nightmare for those unfamiliar with them.
Our goal is to make your underwater shoot run as well as possible. We can provide camera operators who are experienced in all forms of film making from drama to natural-history. Our resident underwater cameraman has directed and shot some of the most spectacular underwater footage of the last 10 years. We have been involved in the production of these shoots from a ground/dry level. However, David is one of the brightest and most ambitious underwater cameramen you’ll find. If you’d like to have a chat about a current project or future idea then feel free to pick up the phone and give us a call on +44 (0)161 339 3741. Below is a list of some of the equipment that we have in-house for underwater shoots. However, if you require something like a RedSee for super slowmotion Phantom shots we can also provide this at an additional cost. Basically, whatever the shoot requirements we can assist you. Just give us a call and we’ll talk you through the process.
