Underwater filming and location assessment for a German TV commercial.

Client: Film & Co
Director: Marc Malze
Thai Production: Red Balloon Film Co Ltd

TV commercial for Spar supermarkets in Germany.

The production required some top-side shooting, this was done by D.O.P. Duli Diesmannsberger (www.duli.at) and some underwater shooting, that was done by us.

Both Duli, the DOP, and Marc the director are certified divers and had considered taking on the underwater scenes themselves but after reviewing our show reel asked us along on the underwater location scouting and to shoot some set-ups as a try-out.

…and the ‘underwater tripod’…

At our preliminary meeting we were asked to bring along our underwater tripod as they were impressed by the steadiness of the shots in the show reel. They were delighted and intrigued when we explained that none of our clips had been shot using any steadying equipment, just a steady hand and good diving buoyancy control.

Following the success of our location scout we got the job for the production shoot and filmed lots of swim-bys of SCUBA divers and close-ups of  the star; Mirjam Weichselbraun.

For organising a busy and complicated shoot many thanks to ‘Ped’ the Thai Producer from Red Balloon Film Co Ltd and the hard working SCUBA diving, multi-lingual, 1st AD; Liz [Lertlid Trzop].

Making Movies, Sinking Ships

We were booked for some in-water assistance for a film shoot around Krabi. It’s a Russian Film production and support was required at Koh Hong, Krabi.

Liz  [Lertlid Trzop] and Cookie were the underwater special fx team, required by the Art Department to help sink a speed boat, or at least make it look like a boat had sunk…

Simon and Claire were there just in case the lead actors decided to throw themselves in the water and needed help getting out again. By the end of the day the talent had not gotten wet so Simon and Claire weren’t too active.

Meanwhile, this is how the underwater special fx team spent the day; click below for bigger images and slideshow:

Following the production of their villa advertising video Krabi Villa Company commissioned Pushing Fin to produce a presentation video for their company’s services.

The remit was a bit complicated as the customer wanted aspects to appeal to each of their different customer segments whilst, of course, providing a coherent and flowing video presentation.

This is the result; a video to showcase the services of Krabi Villa Company to villa owners looking for a management company and to potential guests who want to know what’s included in the holiday package and to get a glimpse of the area and environment of Krabi…
