Hear from a panel of DPs who specialise in aerial and underwater cinematography. Murray Milne, Mike Bhana, Amber Jones and Ben Ruffell will share their knowledge and discuss what it takes to achieve stunning shots both up in the air and down in the water.
Capturing underwater moving images is both technical and creative. There's a lot of preparation to ensure the camera is watertight and operating correctly. You need to be able to manage your diving and camera skills at the same time. But the freedom to dolly the camera in three dimensions can be exciting, and the light and environment underwater can be beautiful.
Then there's aerial cinematography, which provides a very high vantage point and is perfect for being able to capture more within a frame as well as providing a unique perspective.
Both areas necessitate an inquisitive and creative operator who is constantly asking questions, assessing a location, establishing limitations or boundaries on the shoot, and devoting a significant amount of time and effort to ensuring the safety of both the crew and the equipment - all while capturing visually stunning images!
