Hey Shane, really great insight on underwater cinematography and the tests leading up to choosing film. I too have a PADI certification and have done a bit of diving – just curious if you needed to use any red filters with the camera rig to account for the blueish green shift underwater? Best, Rick

      @Rick Guile Hi Rick, We did not use the Red filters. We wanted to educate the audience what deep meant. So above 25 ft, which is the line where you loose RED/YELLOW light from the sun, this showed that our team was above 25ft. When they went below it, we embraced the cyan skin tones and the deep blue, this was to educate our audience that they are going very deep. So we used the Red level 25' as a audience educator. Using color to inform your audience was crucial in our storytelling process
