For Equipment Hire:
We are a company specialized in underwater filming (and photography) in all kind of environments. Rui Guerra, the key person behind it, has more than 30 years experience as a diver and more than 20 years in underwater image.
All the equipment we use is available to rent with image/camera assistant and/or camera operator included.
We use specialized underwater housings from top brands (Nauticam and Subal) to have 100% control of our cameras, including our main cinema 6K RED Weapon camera. The design of our RED housing, allows the use of two simultaneous batteries, for more then 3h30 of operation. We use a big 1TB card with 1h15min recording capacity at full resolution.
All our cameras have surface live feed vídeo output to the director’s / DP monitors, so they can see in real time what the camera is recording. And we also ahev full control of the camera form a surface computer, so it is possible to change settings, record and playback very fast, without taking the camera out of the water.
We also have several autonomous underwater lighting systems to bring you the full colors from any scene. We use top quality vídeo lights from Light & Motion, with high CRI and TLCI. Besides being completely autonomous, our lights can also be connected to the main power supply (220 / 110 V) for long duration shoots and can be used outside water, for top lighting effect, in a very small and powerful system.
As for diving equipment we use a closed-circuit rebreather to stay longer, deeper, safer and without noise or bubbles to disturb marine life ant to not interfere with the frame. Of course, that we also have regular scuba equipment and we can also free dive to capture fast ocean action, like whales and dolphins.
Camera movement is something that we can do in a very stable way, using an underwater scooter with smooth and 100% controllable speed.
Based in Portugal, our main grounds for underwater filming are Azores islands, Madeira islands and Portugal mainland. But we are available to work anywhere in the world, for how long it takes to capture the footage you are after.
Besides underwater filming and photography, underwater time-lapse is also one of our specialities.
We have the equipment, the skills, the experience and know-how to capture the footage you need for your documentary, feature film, commercial, etc.
