The concept was to create an extremely stylized and dramatic Behind the Scenes image of the cast & crew at work giving a sneak preview at the awesome project that they're putting together. The image could then be used for a two page spread on a magazine without necessary giving out the plots or storyline!
This was the first time I had actually had the opportunity to work with a real underwater studio and it presented a whole new set of challenges I had not previously thought of - breathing, posing, directing, moving... all surprisingly difficult.
Richard Stevenson, diving specialist and the gentlemen featured on the lower right with the underwater RED Epic was kind enough to lend me his 10,000$ underwater housing & camera system for the shoot to make this shot possible!
The Underwater Realm have been in over 61 weeks of production, getting ready to begin Principal Photography and this was the first time they had actually assembled the entire hair, makeup, costume crew with a couple models to do some live tests... it worked.
We'll be doing our own Behind the Scenes both short (for the SLRLounge) and long (for our DVD backers) on how the scene was created, lit and more... ! Be sure to check back :)
Check out their Behind the Scenes video blog here (fast forward to the end to see actual video footage!):
