Come and Learn Scuba Diving In Peace

Joel and Meg have recently opened Sea Gypsy Divers in a small village close to Ao Nang.
The dive centre is in a rural village surrounded by farming and countryside, away from the tourist crowds.  As Joel and Meg will tell you, you can “come and learn SCUBA diving in peace”.
Purpose built for SCUBA diving training and delivering PADI courses they have a classroom and deep swimming pool in their landscaped gardens. All the resources are here for a fun and relaxed way for to learn – “everyone can be a SCUBA diver”.”

Patient Teaching and Environmental Education

Joel and Meg are very enthusiastic about diving in this area of Krabi and around the Phi Phi islands. They specialise in teaching nervous divers and students that don’t want to feel like they are rushing through the training.
They are also very passionate about the ecology of the marine environment and educate all of their diving trainees about what they can do to help protect it.

Video Production

We had a great time making their promotional movie. The energy and enthusiasm is contagious;

Stickermania Underwater

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:

Krabi Villa Company Presentation

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…
