Summer Swim Series – One HD
Shooting began at 9pm at Auburn public swimming pool.
Gas lines were tapped from BBQ gas bottles and ran along the bottom of the pool. Once the gas rose to the surface of the water it was ignited.
A lot of the flame effects you see are achieved in-camera, with long lensing to bring flames closer to the talent.
The dive in shot & overhead flame shots had to be composited as it was too dangerous for the swimmers to be so close to the flames.
