I’m comfortable and experienced working with high profile actors, artists and presenters who become engaged with filming in the marine environment, and I focus on a ‘safety first’ approach without over complicating production needs. If you’re filming within the UK then the activity comes under the UK H+SE for which I’m a registered diving contractor, so please drop me a line if you need any assistance with this element of production.
If you need your presenter or contributor’s audio recording whilst using a full face mask underwater I have my own equipment available to achieve this, please watch the short film below for an idea how it sounds whilst underwater.
The underwater filming equipment I own and operate is professionally manufactured and maintained and I always have comprehensive back up equipment available should you need additional kit at short notice.
