Film Crews 

We have a lot of experience with film crews and have worked on many projects such as:

  • Independent filmmakers
  • Wildlife stock footage projects
  • TV shipwreck surveys
  • Historical programmes
  • Stunt diving and safety logistics 
  • Special interest programmes
  • Underwater basking shark projects
  • Hollywood Feature Films

Our staff are experienced and knowledgeable marine biologists who can provide on-screen dialogue interpreting our wildlife. Some have industry experience in photography and filmmaking so we can also provide divers and free-divers who can be tasked for underwater filming.  We are an HSE diving contractor so can plan and organise HSE registered media diving teams along with having full snorkel and scuba hire equipment. 

We have a selection of underwater filming equipment and lighting sources which can be hired out for projects with us. Along with details on our main vessel 'Cearban' - see here for a brochure download of all our services and equipment.

An example of some of the spring 2016 filming projects can be found underneath.
