Filming the Mars
The TV documentary Tall Ships at war is under production. Filming started this summer both on land and underwater. Using the very best video technology available. A custom built housing designed by Erik Börjeson for the Red Epic 5K promises ultra-high resolution and image quality. There is no ambient light at 70m so the biggest challenge is to light the scene. The team at times had up to 6 off camera 200 Watt HMI lights in the water simultaneously to light the wreck site.
In 2013 the underwater video production will continue with an even more ambitious plan. We hope to deploy a 5000 Watt ship-tethered HMI light to put an artificial sun just above the wreck. This should be equivalent to about 20.000 Watt halogen light output.
