  “Aquabatix were not just terrific on ‘Swimming With Men’, they were essential! Adele and Katie were incredibly focused and hard-working. Always there with strong suggestions for the routines and endlessly supportive and encouraging to the cast, and a great pleasure to have around.”

Oliver Parker - Film Director
“I’ve no idea how Adele and Katie managed to get us group of middle aged wobbly men to pull off some pretty neat aquabatic manoeuvres using only kindness, imagination and great, great patience, but they did. Huge respect to you both.”

Rupert Graves - Actor
"How they managed to make a bunch of unfit middle-aged blokes look like a synchronised swimming team in such a short time I’ll never know!”    

Jim Carter - Actor
“A group of actors who couldn’t stay afloat managed to create a great and enjoyable film with all the help and creativeness of the girls. Without them the film wouldn’t have been made and I personally wouldn’t be able to perform the wilting flower.”

Thomas Turgoose - Actor
"Aquabatix were a delight to work with and took me from zero ability when it came to synchronised swimming to doing things in the water that truly amazed me. I have taken these skills forward and will continue to show off on summer holidays for as long as my body allows. Thank you so much Adele and all at Aquabatix.”

Rob Brydon - Actor & Comedian
'The Aquabatix team is a group of extremely talented and professional athletes, all of whom made our day filming a long and complicated underwater sequence a genuine pleasure from start to finish. From initial concept through to completion the athletes were enthusiastic and accommodating in equal measure, generously collaborating on the project at every opportunity. The swimmers worked tirelessly on the day to a demanding schedule, and managed to keep smiling and enjoying themselves throughout - a testament to their stamina and dedication. I can only thank everyone for their fantastic effort and would hope to work with the team again in the not too distant future.'

Charlie Anderson - Producer/Director
"Aquabatix models are so competent in the water that it will save you time and money on your underwater production. I can highly recommend them for underwater shoots of all kinds”

Adele Carlsen took a difficult brief, a Chinese synchronised swimming pair in Europe, and delivered top draw, immensely professional talent. From logistics to bespoke choreography, every element of the project Aquabatix was involved with ran perfectly. Definitely the first port of call for aquatic talent. 

Tarquin Glass - Producer
mtv 'The Aquabatix synchronised swimming team were fantastic. Very talented performers, extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. They choreographed a great routine perfect for our filming requirements and I highly recommend Aquabatix to anyone within the entertainment industry.'

Alex Kohler - Director
Nichole de Carle 'The advantage of using Aquabatix artists over traditional models is they were completely comfortable in the water and able to move in a natural and instinctive way. I was able to shoot them in striking and unusual poses that simply couldn't have been achieved outside of that environment.'

I'd happily recommend Aquabatix again. From a production point of view I really appreciate your speed and understanding when it came to negotiation costs prior to the shoot.'

Michael de Vries - Senior Manager
'Aquabatix were highly professional and flexible in their approach with the Speedo advertising shoot. Their models were outstanding underwater, and were able to work for many hours non stop to achieve the desired images. In this current economic climate, Aquabatix were flexible and worked with us on our budget constraints to enable us to produce the work on time and in budget. Thank you to all at Aquabatix and I would certainly choose to work with Aquabatix again and use their models in future advertising campaigns.'
