Filming 30 feet down – underwater movie studio opens in Belgium

A new underwater studio, whose owner and manager Wim Michiels said was “the most unique in the world”, opened in Belgium.The movie studio has two “dry” stages in addition to the “water stage,” which has wave and wind machines that can whip up a perfect storm for any film needing one. The studio includes a moveable floor that means sets constructed on dry land can be lowered into the water. Poolside cranes lift in boats or other props, and staff are on hand to train actors.At a show for media and investors on Wednesday, a scene showed a man and a woman caught in a storm, with waves turning their boat over and bolts of lightning.Even though the studio was only presented on Wednesday, Swedish director Joachim Heden had already shot scenes for his new film “Breaking Surface” in the Vilvoorde studio in January.He filmed scenes of his survival movie in a blizzard in the Arctic, but the idea of putting actors and crew into the frozen waters was out of the question.
