First dive lesson with Frogwomen Kara and Uma [3rd video of Project F]

Today I wanna present the longest video of Project F …yet!

In this one, Frogwoman Kara has her very first dive lesson and Frogwoman Uma is also joining for some practice!

Both are guided by a nice divemaster while I am behind the camera, so up to 4 people are underwater during the filming of this video.

Both frogwomen are practicing some basic scuba skills that are crucial when you wanna be a scuba diver.

 

First dive lesson with Frogwomen Kara and Uma, 1080p, 60 frames, 8:24 minutes

Frogwoman Kara is wearing a Cressi Fast wetsuit while breathing with a Mares Abyss regulator.

Frogwoman Uma is wearing a Camara Speedskin smooth skin wetsuit while breathing with a Scubapro C370 regulator.

 

Some preview pictures:

The picture quality in the video does actually look a little better than the screenshots

A short trailer that also includes scenes from this video:

Both did a really good job with these scuba exercises as they had very little (Uma) to no scuba experience (Kara).

Several exercises can be seen in the video, I thought about adding titles to sections of the video, but I don’t want to have spoilers in it 😉

I will use the spoiler function here for those who wanna be surprised by what will happen in the video! I recommend not reading it before watching the video 😉

Spoiler title
-01:14 Kara dives around the pool for the first time  -02:14 Kara and Uma clearing their scuba masks after flooding them    -04:18 Kara and Uma practicing to retrieve the regulator and how to start breathing from it underwater    -06:38 Kara and Uma practice on how to buddy breath by using the octopus regulator of the dive buddy   -08:24 Kara is testing a BCD for an exercise in buoyancy

As you can see in the pictures already some slight gear changes were made as Kara started diving barefoot. Over time that was a little too cold for her so she put on neoprene socks.

For the last 2 minutes of the video, she changed from the weight belt to a BCD vest.

Editing:

I used the same filters as before (white balance, 10% more brightness in the shadows, text).

The original/raw footage was about 17 minutes, so I cut out about half of it as some scenes were repeated and the intro and outro of each recording were (logically) cut out as well.

Perhaps I will put some of the extra footage in the VIP club in the future.

Frogwoman Kara was sadly only available for 2 hours instead of the planned 5, as there were massive train delays that day.

And that wasn’t the only problem that day, more on the shooting here:

But she is interested in shooting more videos…. 🙂

Wanna see more of Frogwoman Uma …aka…. “Granola Kitty”?

Check out her Facebook page where you can see much more of her:

Next week I will post the first video of her diving in different gas masks!

Wanna watch this video?

Well, then send 5.99 Euro in my direction (aka 5,99 Euro depending on in which country you live in).

Every video that will be for individual sales like this one will have an individual price… so I know instantly what video you want by the amount that you send.

The details can be found on this page (scroll down to video 3):

https://frogwoman.org/project-f-videos

 

Every Euro I get by this and the donations for the VIP club will support me in doing more video shooting like this in the future as I can save that money for rent location, additional gear, and to pay the frogwomen.

I learned quite a lot from the first shooting and there is a lot of room for improvement for future videos.

Next week I will post a short video on Wednesday and a longer one on Sunday.

The frogwoman who enjoyed being in the water a little….too much

This one is on my radar for ages since it was recommended to me at least twice. Thanks a lot, folks!

Well, I’m not too excited about these scenes, but I’m sure that others will love these scenes.

A woman learns how to scuba dive in two scenes. In a third scene, she dives somehow too….but not as you may think 😉

And here is the video:

The scenes where she is in the pool are nice, but nothing spectacular.

The struggle in the final scene is quite….interesting, of course, I would have preferred her to wear her scuba gear…but well…no luck.

But the idea of her having second thoughts about killing herself and then struggling to survive her own death trap….was well done!

Wanna know from which movie this is from?

An unexperienced frogwoman on her first dive

This odd scene from a Russian movie (tv show?) shows how much you can do wrong when you go on a scuba dive!

I don’t understand the Russian audio but clearly, the woman never dove before and the guy has some experience with scuba diving.

Let’s start with some preview pictures:

And here is the video:

Oh man! These two do a LOT of things that you shouldn’t do while diving! 😉

Her excuse may be the little to no experience that she has. A fine example of why you shouldn’t dive without a proper scuba certificate!

She gets a panic attack and accidentally rips out his regulator, he should now just retrieve his regulator and the situation could be under control again.

But he grabs the regulator of the panicking frogwoman….what a disaster move!

These two have 4 working regulators in total…but what do they do? Use only 1(!) of them! Oh man…..

Of course, pulling out her regulator makes things worse and she heads to the surface….way too fast!

These two can be happy that they are still alive. 😆

I don’t have an IMDB link this time, I just know the English title:

“Wanted a wife with a kid”

*EDIT* Original title seems to be: IMDB

If this is a Russian movie or TV show…I don’t know.

What do you think of that scene?

A woman teaches a man how to dive in vintage scuba gear

I got another one for you folks.

In this clip we have a frogwoman who teaches a guy how to dive. You may recognise the regulator/tanks from Thunderball 😉

And here is the video:

Well, I miss the matching Thunderball wetsuit for her….but you can’t have everything.

Pretty difficult to concentrate on how to dive if you have a teacher like that…. 😉

If you wanna know from which movie that is:

Well, for today I got something very rare for you… a complete scuba documentary from the ’60s! With a length of 30 minutes!

And as a bonus, with some scuba peril scenes included!

In the beginning, everything is explained in a cartoon, but that’s just the first 6-7 minutes…don’t worry. 😉

And here is the video:

As you may have seen the picture quality isn’t so good, but remember, the documentary is 50 years old…

It is really great, that it was filmed in color. And the scuba gear and exercises are pretty interesting!
