Diving Coordination

Marine Film Projects provides fully certified HSE dive-teams to oversee and manage all aspects of the marine film environment.

From water’s edge and surface supervision to deep dive training and safety assessments, our primary aim is the safety of crew and artiste alike.

Our meticulous attention to detail starts with a recognition and assessment of the skills and technical abilities of team members and a thorough review of the film schedules to ensure safe working practices.

Our qualified instructors can teach actors the skills required to perform in and around the water and our extensive range of underwater communications equipment ensures they are connected at all times.

Credits include; Loch Ness Monster (The Deep), 3 Men in a Boat, Masters of the Sea, Miracle landing on the Hudson, Vera series 2, The Smoke.
