Aquabatix underwater actors star in ROMANS brilliant new video Uh Huh, which was filmed underwater at Basildon Underwater Studios.
Shot mainly underwater, the Aquabatix models use their acting skills both in and out of the water telling a story of a guy chasing his love through the water after she jumps away from him. Both professional underwater actors are highly skilled in water, coming from a swimming and synchronised swimming background. Lenka, a former synchronised swimmer, excelled at being upside down and ‘running’ along the surface of the water. A skill very few can do. Both are used to being underwater, holding their breath but knowing how to hold facial expressions in water, and move efficiently under there.
The Director required professionals who could work underwater all day in full clothes as well as have the skill to run upside down, move fast when needed, and know their bearings underwater.. Aquabatix models also feature as the background artists in the video, which are shown jumping in the water to create splash effects and bodies.
The video was also shot on location on the south coast of the UK. Watch the full video here Uh Huh
