Blue Whales are incredibly difficult to film. Like many animals they don’t read the director’s script! So being in the right place at the right time is incredibly difficult. We were fortunate to be involved in a shoot that did manage to be in the right place at the right time, with the right equipment. It enabled us to get some amazing underwater footage of these magnificent animals.
On this particular shoot we were provided with a boat, but a problem with communication meant that we were not provided with a skipper. Thankfully, the supervisor provided was also a commercially licensed skipper in the UK.
