3 Days (21 teaching hours)


Please contact us for more upcoming dates. Custom courses can be arranged for your organisation if you have a minimum number.


S$ 1700 (Before 8% GST)

S$ 1836 (After 8% GST)

Who Should Attend:

Recommended for directors, actors/actresses and camera operators.


Must be medically fit for underwater activities.

Complete a 200-metre/yard swim or 300-metre/yard swim using a mask, fins and snorkel without stopping.

All participants must have their own underwater video equipment. Diving equipment will be available.

Course Outline:

When underwater, subjects can move in ways very different from on land. When shooting fast motion underwater the camera has to be as fast as the human motion, moving in three dimensions  and ascending and descending freely. In situations like these, diving equipment becomes cumbersome and even restrictive.

The objective of this course is to train film-makers to shoot fast motion underwater with minimal diving equipment and for filmed subjects to perform better underwater for the camera, using principles of free-diving.

This includes,

    . Shots that are suitable for fast motion filming

    . Environmental conditions

    . Proper weighting with the camera and housing

    . Streamlining underwater movement for better shots

    . Equipment for fast motion filming

    . Safety measures

    . The physiological aspects of breath-holding

    . How to extend filming time

    . Underwater styling and make-up considerations

    . Pool practices

    . Practice at depth (sea condition)
