Aquabatix underwater model, Genevieve, recently filmed an underwater scene for De Winter, a new short film by fashion designer Kathleen Nellis and Matthew Clyde.
Shot at the Underwater Studios in Basildon, Genevieve was required to wear several items of clothes underwater which were then discarded as she gracefully floated deep down in the depths of the tank.
Matching the actress’s look perfectly, Genevieve was also chosen on her natural ability underwater, with her vast background in synchronised swimming, where she has represented Great Britain at competitions such as the World Championship and Europeans. Like all the Aquabatix models, Genevieve can stay underwater for long periods of time, understands her whereabouts and how to move effortlessly in water and is happy to spend hours in a tank being filmed without needing much rest. This helps the Director achieve all that they need and more, as well as assisting in the shoot running effortlessly. There is so much to shooting underwater, that production need to be able to rely on the model to be able to do their job well.
The short film De Winter was the idea of Kathleen Nellis and will be screened at the London College of Fashion MA show as well as possible other festivals.
