Something new for the next video shoot… [Unboxing video]

I posted about this video last week on the VIP club, now it’s time to move it to the regular blog!

For the next video shoot in early March, I got something new:

(the video is unlisted on my YouTube channel since it doesn’t show any frogwomen)

Sorry for the minor audio issues, I was a little sick in the days before…

 

More gear of Project F here:

https://frogwoman.org/project-f/project-f-scuba-gearwanted-scuba-gear

It’s not easy to get a fully red (smooth skin) wetsuit since that color is the first one that “vanishes” underwater at some meters depth already (without extra lighting):

But that won’t be a problem in the pool, even if it’s a deep one with up to 4 meters… like in this case. 🙂

Even I am a little confused as I was thinking that red wetsuits would look like orange at a certain depth. (#Thunderball)

I wanna use that suit in a scenario where a frogwoman in red meets a frogwoman in black, I think that would look really good in contrast.

Especially as it reminds me of the wetsuit color pattern from a certain movie 😉

Even the suits of the good guys mostly appear to look orange underwater…depending on depth and lighting.

The suit is quite thin with 1,5mm.

Here is a picture of the suit from the Elios website (edited):

An interesting color, looks very “normal” red here with certain lighting it looks like a mixture between red and pink.

Looking forward to using that suit in the next video shoot!

Frogwomen Lucy and Tessie in “Scuba Combat Training 5” – [28th video of Project F – 4th video shoot]

So, it’s time for a new “Project F” video!

This is video 28 and the fourth from the 4th video shoot.

A little early (Friday instead of Sunday) as I am mostly away on the weekend.

In this video, Frogwomen Lucy and newcomer Tessie are training their scuba combat skills so they are always ready for a mission.
 
It’s Tessie’s first appearance in a “Project F” video!
 

 

Frogwomen Lucy and Tessie in “Scuba Combat Training 5”, 1080p, 60 frames, 3:58 minutes

Info: The training has 4 rounds. That means that 4 times one of them forces the other one to the surface.

 

Some preview pictures:

Background info (without spoiler):

Tessie was the safety diver for most of the day but also debuted in front of the camera in this video.

She has some scuba certificates and plenty of scuba experience already at a rather young age.

So, it was pretty difficult for Lucy to force Tessie to the surface in this training scenario 😉

In comparison to modern regulators, the 60-year-old Royal Mistral double hose regulator is less comfortable when it comes to breathing and handling but Lucy adapted to it quickly.

The mouthpiece of the Royal Mistral got slightly damaged during this video… more on that in the VIP section.

Luckily nothing that would prevent any further usage (no big repairs needed).

Tessie came up with some nice extra elements like the fin pulling and the leg scissors and both did a really good job!

My favorite element was the scene where Tessie squeezed the corrugated air hose of Lucy, thereby minimizing the airflow for her.

That is another great aspect about these double hose regulators… more options 🙂

You can watch and download these videos in the VIP club, but only for personal use!

Don’t share them with anyone…. anywhere!

It’s pretty simple, I had to spend a lot of money:

All that scuba gear, location rent, and the money for the frogwomen and the safety diver.

If I don’t make enough money with these videos….. I won’t be able to make new videos at some point.

I hope you appreciate these videos and want to see more in the future!

After all, you get all those 6 Project F videos each month + additional content for just 12 euros (or even less per month if you get into the VIP club for more than one month).

I would say that is quite a bargain!

The rotation periods for each video will get a little longer though. When a video leaves the VIP club it will be out for at least 4 months.

But still, there will be …at least…. 5-6 Project F videos in it each month.

 

 

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Combat Training 4” – [25th video of Project F – 4th video shoot]

So, it’s time for a new “Project F” video!

This is video 25 and the first from the 4th video shoot…. and the longest one in the VIP club yet!

In this video, Frogwomen Lucy and Kara are training their scuba combat skills so they are always ready for a mission.

 

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Combat Training 4”, 1080p, 60 frames, 6:13 minutes

Info: The training has 5 rounds. That means that 5 times one of them forces the other one to the surface.

Background info:

I really like to make these videos of the “Scuba Combat Training” series. They are easy to do and you can quickly film them.

Also, I only provide some basics of what to do (like going for masks/regulators) ….and the rest is totally up to the frogwomen.

So, it’s always a surprise to me as well what will happen in the end 🙂

This time the two frogwomen came up with the idea that they could start with a sort of “lurking” phase where they would swim around and then would attack each other at the right moment.

I like the idea as it builds up some suspense, and the video gets a little longer as well…

Frogwoman Lucy was wearing the new silver-grey Elios vintage style beavertail wetsuit that I got some weeks ago and a new white Aqualung mask that I got for a really low price by chance.

It looks really good in my opinion and will surely be used in the future as well.

Both were wearing Omer smooth-skin neoprene socks that look much better than the usual ones. And they are also more comfortable in the fins as they are thicker.

Frogwoman Kara was wearing the Orca Openwater suit and a new Seac mask with a wider viewing field.

 

As I mentioned in the past both have only the scuba experience that they got from the video shoots.

But they both are really comfortable with the gear now and the fact that the two are friends in real life is a big advantage as well.

 

It’s not always easy to be in the right spot with the camera as I can only guess how they will move around in all directions.

Once in this video, I was in an unfortunate position in the end… but well… it’s always a bit of luck involved, and most of the time I think it worked out fine.

Glad that we had some sunshine here as the sun showed up during the filming.

Frogwomen Alice and Caity in “Scuba Combat Training 1” (Full Face Mask edition) – [18th video of Project F – 3rd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the first video of the 3rd video shoot of “Project F”!

In this video, Frogwomen Alice and Caity are practicing their scuba combat skills in Full Face Masks.

There are 4 rounds in this video and they swap the FFMs after the second round.

Caity starts with the modern OTS Guardian and Alice with the vintage Technisub mask.

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

This scuba combat training scenario is a good scenario to film in between the more complicated ones.

The two only got very few instructions so it didn’t take long to film this, which leaves more time for other scenarios.

Both Frogwomen here are experienced divers with over 50 dives (Caity) and over 120 dives (Alice), so this is the video with the most experienced divers so far in this Project.

For Caity, it was her first video shoot, and for Alice her second with Project F as she was in the very first one as well.

As you may know, I’m a big fan of the Technisub FFM and it’s the first time here it was used in a scuba fight video (in this Project).

Both frogwomen mentioned that it is rather hard to breathe in it, especially in comparison to the OTS Guardian.

Well, I wasn’t surprised, as the Technisub mask is around 60 years old…. the modern OTS Guardian has far more comfort to offer.

The OTS Guardian was used for the first time here as I bought it some weeks ago. A rather big investment (even if I bought a used one), but I think the mask looks great 🙂

The Elios suit is one of my favorites, but I really like the Cressi Free Lady suit as well… the black/silver-grey combo looks awesome in my opinion.

I was lucky to get one for a reasonable price, even if it is size S. Now I found the right frogwoman for it, Caity fits into it perfectly.

One “problem” with these FFMs is that they limit the possibilities in a scuba fight. It’s not possible to just yank them off easily like a normal scuba mask or a regulator.

Both are strapped tightly on the face and to pull such a mask off an opponent is rather complicated… maybe we will try that in the future.

The way Alice defeated Caity in round 2 was fully improvised by Alice, it was a fun idea, rather unconventional 😆

The OTS Guardian has a valve to breathe “fresh” air when you are on the surface… we will need to test that feature the next time underwater when an enemy diver opens it 😉

For the first time, frogwomen are wearing gloves in a Project F video.

*EDIT* February 16:

You will now find a second version of this video as well in the VIP Club.

Same video footage but with added music and sound effects from the cult video game “Streetfighter 2” 😉

….just a BONUS for the VIP club members, doesn’t count as an official video!

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Air hose play XL” [video 17XL of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the seventh video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

Sorry for the slight delay.

As mentioned in the previous posts the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

Frogwoman Kara and Frogwoman Lucy wanna figure out who is the better underwater fighter. And there is only one way to find out 😉

This is the “XL version” incl. some interesting bloopers.

I made this as a little BONUS video since I planned to release only 1 new video in December.

 

The normal video 17 cut can be found here:

+ a short teaser (of the shorter version):

Background info:

I think these extra scenes are interesting as they include some extra peril footage and as they are quite funny.

In the middle part (from 01:23 to 02:08) Lucy struggled with her arch-enemy: The sheath of her scuba knife! 😉

At first, we had strapped it to her upper arm in the hope it would look “cooler”, but it was very difficult to adjust it right and we were in a hurry.

Also, the mechanism that holds the knife in place on that sheath is a little tricky…

The other bonus material can be found around 02:30 as Lucy tries to cut the air hose… which is not as easy as it looks in the movies 😉

She pulled hard on Kara’s air hose so Kara lost the regulator for some seconds, interesting images… but I also wouldn’t include scenes like that in the “normal” cut of a video as that wasn’t supposed to happen and makes not much sense to let her retrieve it.

I don’t think I will make such an XL cut again in the future. But I might post such extra material in bonus videos.

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Air hose play” [17th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the sixth video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

As mentioned in the previous posts the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

Frogwoman Kara and Frogwoman Lucy wanna figure out who is the better underwater fighter. And there is only one way to find out 😉

 

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Air hose play”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:04 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

This was the last scenario we filmed on that video shoot and time was slowly running out.

Frogwoman Lucy was still in her vintage-style gear incl. the double hose regulator.

After we had an air hose cut with a corrugated thick hose at the first video shoot, I wanted to have an air hose cut with a modern air hose this time.

At first, Lucy had some problems with getting the knife out of its holster (that footage will be included in the long cut of this video) …and …slicing such a hose is quite difficult!

It took her several tries to “only” damage the hose, which wasn’t the exact result I wanted… but we learned a lot.

I will need to sharpen that knife a little bit before the next video shoot.

I admire how dedicated Lucy was to getting the job done, she tried and tried and didn’t stop even as she cut herself in the fingers several times!

But she stayed really calm and thankfully these were only minor cuts. Still, others might have freaked out, but she was really relaxed and brave.

Next time we will practice such a scene better prior.

 I am quite glad we filmed this scenario at the very end, as this would have influenced the shooting. Don’t think it would have been wise for Lucy to continue on that day.

However, I was and am really happy with how well both Frogwomen mastered this unknown scenario, especially as both have so little experience with diving.

I was quite surprised that this downward move damaged the air hose like that… after the previous attempts didn’t do any real damage (that footage will also be added in the long cut of this video).

In a future scenario like this, I wanna use a detailed script and it would be great to continue the fight after the air hose was sliced. The attacked diver would continue breathing with the 2nd regulator while the air would be gushing out of the other air hose.

I wonder how long the air in the tank will last with a sliced regulator hose? Pretty sure I saw a YouTube video where someone tried that and it took about 2 minutes or so.

Well, we will find out 😉

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy”, Version 2 [16th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the fifth video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

As mentioned in the previous posts the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

Frogwoman Kara is taking pictures of some secret stuff, but frogwoman Lucy isn’t too happy about it!

That leads to a scuba fight… 😉

Some preview pictures:

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

This is the second video with the “scuba spy” scenario (the first one is video 12).

In this version, Frogwoman Kara is holding onto her Camera with the precious images she just shot. Of course, that is a rather big handicap for her as she can only use one arm/hand to defend herself against the attacker.

I guess in a long, scripted version of this scenario she should have some kind of bag/pocket to stash it away or at least have it tied to her wrist with a tiny rope.

Or she could just let it float to the bottom, for that the camera would need some weights, as it floats to the surface… as you can see in video 12.

Frogwoman Lucy really seems to enjoy yanking at other divers regulators 😉

This video has a very short alternative ending at the end.

A frogwoman in a black vintage style Elios wetsuit and Technisub FFM – [Post 2][Reco]

1st post for today, one more will follow!

4 months ago I made a post about her stunning pictures on Instagram:

https://frogwoman.org/a-frgowoman-in-a-black-vintage-style-elios-wetsuit-and-technisub-ffm-reco

Time to do another one because she makes excellent images with such awesome scuba gear 🙂

Some of the new photos:

I imagine walking around a lake and seeing a frogwoman in that gear.

Certainly, a walk to remember!

“Swimmer VS Frogwoman” – test video [15th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

So, it’s time for the fourth video of the 2nd video shoot of “Project F”!

As mentioned in the previous posts the videos from that shoot will be pretty short, but action-packed as we tried some simple action scenarios.

In this video, you can find 2 takes as we tried a “Swimmer VS Frogwoman” scenario.

 

Swimmer Kara and Frogwoman Lucy in “Swimmer VS Frogwoman”, 1080p, 60 frames, 1:47 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

I think the “Swimmer VS Diver” scenario is always interesting even though most of these rare scenarios in the movies end with the death of the swimmer in 99% of all cases.

I would like to build in some surprises in a long, scripted version so it won’t be the standard outcome. Or maybe the expected outcome and some surprises on the way to it. I won’t spoil it here 😉

In these two test takes, we tested that scenario.

Several problems make this scenario challenging.

First of all the swimmer has no air source underwater (surprise!) and therefore she can’t stay down for long during such a fight. That makes filming more difficult of course.

We tested in the shallow end of the pool to stay on the safe side. In the long and scripted version, I would like to use the deep end.

The swimmer has no weights, so she is very buoyant, especially as she is wearing a full neoprene suit here which increases her buoyancy. The diver must pull her underwater and keep her there… which isn’t very easy.

In the full-scripted long video, we will add more weights to the frogwoman, which should help, even if it will make normal swimming more difficult for her. Perhaps she will wear a 2nd weight belt that she would drop once her evil job is finished. 😉

The snorkel mask we used here isn’t so good for the scenario.

At the end of take 1, the mask started to fill with water, which wasn’t supposed to happen as Frogwoman Lucy didn’t attack it prior.

Maybe we use swimming goggles for the long, scripted video.

 

 

Fun facts:

At the very end of take 2, you can see how Kara yanked the mask of Lucy away from her face so it flooded completely.

The first time that Frogwoman Lucy was blind underwater and close to defeat.
