Shooting a scene underwater is not the same as shooting it on set. The directors have to consider variables such as the light, the camera’s weight, how to manage it in the water, and other factors to pull off an extraordinary sequence. Ian Seabrook, an Underwater Director of Photography in the Motion Picture and Television Industry, explains the difficulties of filming under these conditions and accomplishing amazing results and an unbelievable scene. He tells how they handle these sequences with the rest of the production team and how they prepare the actors for this kind of shooting. He worked on productions such as Batman v Superman, Deadpool 2, and Jungle Cruise. He also contributed his underwater skills to high-profile documentary films, television, commercial, music videos, and Imax productions and was awarded Double Gold Medals for Cinematography at the 2019 Telly Awards.
