Director Of Photography Underwater Filming for Lisa Film
Simon Deane fulfils an urgent requirement to complete the underwater filming for Lisa Film’s Das Traum Hotel Chiang Mai(transl. Dream Hotel Chiang Mai).
Lisa Film’s Dream Hotel series are straight-to-TV feature length romantic adventures, broadcast in Germany in HD format.
Traum Hotel Chiang Mai is set in Thailand, the dramatic underwater scene involved a group of friends searching for their missing buddy who was last seen leaving to go SCUBA diving.
The trio of friends descend to the reef to locate an old shipwreck; on the way they encounter manta rays; at the wreck of the ship they make a disturbing discovery…
The land based filming had been ‘wrapped’ for this production but the underwater scenes were still to be shot and the weather was beginning to change as the wet-season approached Thailand’s West coast.
Thanks to the hard work and perserverance of a small team and some good luck with a break in the weather this shoot got the material needed to complete the production.
Thanks to Similan Diving Safaris and Orange House Divers Phuket for dive support and logistics.
