Underwater sets and effects

Working on Location

The Red Sea has been the most spectacular place to film for the natural beauty of locations but working in the Caribbean is so much easier and more practical t0 make a job happen.

Working in a tank

There are many tanks in a lot of the older traditional stages, but they are not necessarily designed for filming underwater but for water effects on a stage to be seen from above the surface.

Purpose built tanks for filming underwater with temperature control and serious filtration that I have built sets in, include Pinewood U stage, Action Underwater, Malta Mediterranean film studios and Fox studios Baha.
