People cannot fly, but underwater they may feel weightless. That is why the director of a movie based on a popular Russian fairy tale decided to film a scene of a fight between the Swan Princess and Wicked Wizard-Kite underwater.
I had been invited as a backstage underwater photographer and found the Swan Princess was more than charming. I couldn’t use any lights as these would spoil the scene, but the studio light board was more than enough to create a beautiful backlight underwater, and the chromakey backing formed a nicely textured backdrop.”
