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… 😉

 

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy, Version 2”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:08 minutes

 

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.

 

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

 

Where to watch it?

The video is available in the VIP club in November alongside the other content….as it is under 4 minutes of running time!

Here is a quick overview of the content of this month:

https://frogwoman.org/frogwoman-vip-club-2-0-november-2022

 

You can 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….

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

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

And after all, you get a LOT of videos (7 in November) and other content for just 10 Euro (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! I also wanna make longer videos in the future and they will be much more expensive in comparison (but also better).

They will cost 1-2 Euro per minute, which is the “normal” rate for such videos.

I will also keep doing videos for the VIP club.

This and other “Project F” videos will be rotated out of the VIP club in December and then return in 3-4 months.

Other Project F videos will return to the VIP club in November and 2 new ones will premier that month.

What’s next?

I will post (at least) 2 more videos from that video shoot in the next weeks.

One last one (from this video shoot) in December (+maybe another one in December?)

And of course, there will be new material next year as well.

The one I will post in early December is my favorite video from this video shoot.

In that one Frogwoman Lucy wants to repeat what she did at the end of video 5, it has something to do with a scuba knife 😉

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:

(click on the picture to enlarge it to full size)

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.

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

Frogwoman Lucy in “Vintage dive” [14th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

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

This time one day early as I am away tomorrow.

As I 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 Lucy in “Vintage Dive”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:34 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

On the first video shoot, Frogwoman Alice dove with the Royal Mistral connected with double hoses to a vintage Techniscub FFM (video 1).

Frogwoman Uma tested the Royal Mistral double hose regulator in another video (video 9).

This time I added a vintage-style scuba mask to the scuba gear so Frogwoman Lucy would fully be in a vintage gear that looks like it could have been from the 60s.

So I created a short video with her in that gear incl. some surface shoots of her getting ready for the dive!

For me, it can’t get much better in terms of scuba gear than this combo.

And she will be in this gear in another video with action! (my favorite one from that video shoot)

In the future, I wanna include longer “getting into the scuba gear” scenes at the beginning of some videos.

Spoiler title
As you can see the mask is pretty “flat” with little room for the nose. During the shoot, I didn’t notice that the tip of her nose was pressed against the glass of the mask. That happens if you stare at the tiny screen of the camera all the time (she didn’t notice it either). Certainly, I should have checked that more carefully, but it only fully showed underwater.

Well, I learned another lesson.

Another frogwoman will wear this mask at the next shooting.

But ok, only a small issue, as this is a short video and she is only facing the camera for some short scenes.

 

 

Fun facts:

Frogwoman Lucy had no problem to also dive with this vintage double hose regulator from the 60s.

I guess you won’t find many young women like her who have diving experience with such old vintage gear. Especially since she doesn’t have a scuba certificate.

 

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

As I mentioned before the audio here was challenging with a sound the camera picked up from the pool machinery.

I tried a lot with the audio since that sound is here more annoying than in the other videos that have more action and noise.

I edited the audio track of the underwater part to reduce the noise and stimulatingly not affect the wanted audio.

And the result is quite good I would say.

 

Where to watch it?

Frogwomen Ruby and Lucy in “Treasure hunt” [13th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

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

Also the video premiere of Frogwoman Ruby!

Sorry for the delay! Some logistical problems had to be solved first…

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

 

Frogwomen Ruby and Lucy in “Treasure hunt”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:57 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

This is the first video with Frogwoman Ruby in action! And she did a fine job without any prior scuba experience. She used to play underwater rugby in the past for a while and that may be the reason why she is pretty fearless and was a good match for Frogwoman Lucy. 🙂

She also had no problems

Spoiler title
with Lucy closing the air valve on her tank (we tested it once on the surface).

Sometimes it wasn’t easy for me to keep up with the two, as they made good use of the space they had in that deep pool as they swam at a pretty high pace.

At the beginning of the video (before the fight), you will notice

Spoiler title
blue bars over certain small areas of the screen (for about 20 seconds in total).

Sorry for that, but the frogwomen are visible all the time, so it’s not such a big issue. I had to do it since the security diver was visible in these parts of the video and …..well…. he wasn’t supposed to be visible 😉 A mistake that won’t happen again.

I was glad that I could use the stunning Cressi Triton suit this time and it looked great on Ruby. Perhaps I will buy that suit again in M or L.

I found it as a real bargain (in comparison to its normal price) in size S. But that suit is too small for most women …in this size…

For a test video that has basically no script, I am really happy with the result. It was a good test to see how the Frogwomen would handle such a fight scene and react to certain aspects.

Certainly wanna use that “fight over treasure” scenario in the future again, but then with a detailed script (incl. storyline), and a proper ending.

 

 

Fun facts:

Check out how Ruby is clearing her mask in the background as Lucy has found the gold coin.

The gold coin was in fact a standard greek coin (from before they got the Euro as well).

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

As I mentioned before the audio here was challenging with a sound the camera picked up from the pool machinery.

So far I haven’t figured out how to suppress that sound without damaging the “wanted” audio. But well, it isn’t really a big issue here as the 3 regulators here make a lot of noise so that background noise isn’t really distracting (as you can hear in the preview teaser video above).

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy” [12th video of Project F – 2nd video shoot]

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

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

 

Frogwomen Kara and Lucy in “Scuba Spy”, 1080p, 60 frames, 2:25 minutes

 

Some preview pictures:

(click to enlarge)

 

+ a short teaser:

Background info:

I do know 2 movies/TV shows that have this “Diver takes pictures and gets attacked” scenario. James Bond in Thunderball and the frogwoman in the “Silk Stalkings” TV show.

And in the future, I wanna make a version with a detailed script where a frogwoman takes pictures of some secret stuff and gets attacked by an evil frogwoman who wants to stop her (and kill her).

For this video, I used only some basic instructions on what the two should and could do and it was a one-shot without any re-shoots.

My camera was a little shaky in the first few seconds. I’m pretty new to the whole filming aspect and it’s not easy to totally focus on the tiny camera screen when such a scene happens in real life right before you 😉

It was also not easy to follow these two with the camera, but I think it worked out quite well even though it’s a bit of a challenge to move around in 3 dimensions and stay in a good position to the moving action.

I am very happy about how the 2 frogwomen (Kara + Lucy) did such an action scene underwater! I mean the two have basically no scuba experience and only had that mini scuba session from the first video shooting back in December. I am glad they returned for another video shoot!

They were really brave and the scene worked out pretty fine in my opinion.

Frogwoman Lucy really likes to steal regulators and likes to be a scuba villainess 😉

We had only 5 hours to shoot and a LOT of time was needed to assemble the gear and all that. And I wanted to get several quick scenarios done in that time to gain experience in shooting underwater action scenes.

I will write detailed scripts for the next shooting, as long these videos generate enough money to cover at least the expenses.

Yeah, the video here is short, but it has a rather long scuba fight (90% of the runtime). In the end, most scuba fights in movies or TV shows are much shorter in the end.

With a detailed script I wanna make a video with this scenario that will have at least 5 or 6 minutes.

But we made a 2nd version of this fight, I will post that in the next weeks as well.

 

Fun fact:

At first the fight was supposed to be about the camera but that quickly floated out of sight and mind (can be seen on the surface in the last seconds).

Next time I will need to add some weight into the camera 😉

 

Editing:

I used some filters (10% more brightness in gamma and gain, text).

As I mentioned before the audio here was challenging with a sound the camera picked up from the pool machinery.

Still working on improving that with audio filters, so you will find 2 versions of this. One with the original audio and the latest version with audio filters.

You can check the (original) sound in the video above. It’s not really bad, but I still try to find a way to improve it.

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

Just a quick post for today as I don’t have enough time.

Many of you will know this Instagram account by now, but for those who don’t, check out her Instagram account …and also her Youtube channel (linked on her Insta):

https://www.instagram.com/aryasdiveart/

A preview:

(click to enlarge)

Well, I mentioned several times how much I love that Technisub FFM and that Elios suit is a great addition!

The same type of Elios suit was used on the first video I published for “my Project F” last year.

This mask is similar but don’t have the side mounting like mine has, here the regulator gets connected in the center piece of the mask.

All in all a really great assembly of scuba gear!

She would certainly be a great frogwoman for the SPECTRE scuba team 🙂

What do you think of this gear and her pictures?

Frogwomen rivalry with Frogwomen Alice and Lucy [5th video of Project F]

Today I wanna present another video of Project F!

A very special one as this contains a nice action scene 😉

 

Frogwomen rivalry with Frogwomen Alice and Lucy, 1080p, 60 frames, 4:25 minutes

Frogwoman Alice is wearing the Elios vintage style beavertail smooth skin wetsuit. For the most part, she is using a Scubapro C370, later on, a Royal Mistral Double Hose Regulator.

Frogwoman Lucy is wearing the Aquasphere Pursuit smooth skin wetsuit and a Mares Abyss regulator.

 

 

Some preview pictures:

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

(click to enlarge)

A short trailer that also includes scenes from this video:

I thought hard if I should publish the 4th picture above. I mean it spoilers the action scene, but in the end, it has to be there so that you folks know that there is this action scene at the end.

And from that picture you still don’t know how it’s gonna end so… I think it’s good to have it.

 

In parts of this video, I am using the small 1L Smaco tank that Lucy used in video 2 as I wanted to be at the bottom of the pool so the two frogwomen could dive above me.

For the most part of the video Frogwoman, Alice is wearing a Cressi mask with a mirror effect so that you only can see through the glass from certain angles. I think it’s a really cool mask for a mysterious frogwoman. For the last scene, they swapped their masks as I think that mask fits better to the “evil” frogwoman.

I recommend that you watch the video before you continue!

SPOILERS ahead!

(click on the “Spoiler title+” field below IF you wanna read the spoilers)

Spoiler title
I am very happy that the two agreed to make that last scene as not everyone would be OK with actually doing that. Frogwoman Lucy had only perhaps one hour or less of scuba experience (in total) was willing to do something that nearly no diver has actually ever done. Frogwoman Alice had to react fittingly to the action, which she did really well, especially considering this was all very much improvised as time was running out quickly.

But I am happy with the outcome, especially as a scene like that wasn’t done like that, at least not to my knowledge. I mean how many scenes do you know where a hose of a frogwoman with a double hose regulator gets sliced by another diver? I know exactly one fetish video where that happens…..and there they cheat big time as the outtake hose gets cut…which isn’t a real problem for the “victim”. I do know not a single movie where that happens.

If you look closely you can see that the two hoses of her double hose regulator are different. I swapped the original hose from the ’60s (!) with a modern version that was less flexible and thicker. With the first slice, Frogwoman Lucy damaged the air hose as you can see as air is already escaping. The second slice severed the hose at another place as the “salvaged” air hose showed later. Perhaps the damaged air hose would have ripped also as the air was pumping through it later one….hard to say.

And this all was just a test run for much more scripted scenes I have in mind for the next shooting! These will have a (simple) storyline with more action and “deadly” outcomes as well…. and then my camera skills and lightning skills will have improved as well 😉

I underestimated how loud the noise would be as she surfaced and the air was still blown out of that sliced hose….. Above the surface, I quickly closed the valve, but damn, that was QUITE loud! I actually filmed that as the camera was still running as I closed the valve.

Also if you look closely in the buddy breathing scene, it looks like Lucy is pulling the octopus regulator away from Alice….perhaps on purpose as a foresign of the next scene? 😉

 

Editing:

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

The original/raw footage was about some minutes longer but contained some footage where we discussed some aspects in between the shots.

You can download these videos, but only for your personal use.

Don’t share them with anyone…. anywhere!

It’s pretty simple, I had to spend a lot of money, especially on scuba gear and location rent.

A lot of my …limited… savings were used up for that.

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

So…. I hope you appreciate these videos and want to see more in the future.

Wanna watch this video?

Well, then send 4.99 Euro in my direction (aka 4,99 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 5):

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.

The first video of Project F can now be found….

…in the VIP section! (among the other content)

I have decided that I will upload videos from “Project F” with a runtime of under 4 minutes in the VIP section of this blog, alongside some bonus material here and there.

These videos won’t be there all at once all the time but in some sort of rotation. For example: Video X in January, Video A in January, Video Q in February, Video B in February etc.

That will depend on how many short videos will be there in total.

So, if you are already a member there….well, then you can watch them with no additional costs!

The price for the VIP club will remain the same…but only for the rest of this year.

In 2022 the prices will go up a little (one month for 10 Euro instead of 8 Euro, and so on) as the content will grow bigger.

If you are already a member…that won’t affect you…. you will get what you have paid for in the past.

I want to provide transparency by telling you this now.

If you are thinking of joining the VIP club, I would recommend doing it now 😉

And if you are a member already, you could buy additional months for the VIP club now….just saying.

 

The ones that are longer than 4 minutes will be sold individually on a special page on the blog.

 

So, for starters, I wanna present a video where Frogwoman Alice is doing a little test dive in the pool with my favorite vintage FFM, the Technisub FFM (aka La Spirotechnique).

The mask gets oxygen from a Royal Mistral vintage double hose regulator.

She is wearing an Elios vintage style beavertail smooth skin wetsuit with matching hood and neoprene socks…also from Elios.

 

Technisub FFM test dive, 1080p, 60 frames, 3:10 minutes

I have mentioned the difficulties we had to face during the shooting (lighting, camera settings, no fins possible, etc.).

https://frogwoman.org/the-first-video-shooting-for-project-f-how-did-it-go

So, the picture quality is ok but could be better for sure.

I will work on that for the 2nd shooting.

And I will then include more close-ups and above the surface shots 😉

 

Some preview pictures:

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

(click to enlarge)

A short trailer that also includes scenes from this video:

This was a very much improvised video that I edited together from 2 videos.

The gear that Frogwoman Alice is wearing is near perfection for me!

The Technisub FFM is an old favorite of mine in combination with the double hose regulator.

And that Elios suit is really awesome, hard to find something better in my opinion.

*EDIT December 13* Not a big surprise, but diving with such a twin hose regulator and such a mask was new to Frogwoman Alice.

She thought it was fun even breathing from such an old vintage regulator was less comfortable in comparison with a newer one.

The dampened sound you hear pretty much at the beginning of the video is my old snorkel filling up with water and then me blowing it out.

I filmed most of the time just with a mask and snorkel to avoid having my breathing sounds from a regulator in the video.

But in that one scene, I went down a little too far…

Next time I will use a newer snorkel that closes up automatically in case it goes below the surface.

*EDIT* November 1:

It will be available again in the VIP club in February!

Some background info on the video editing:

I used the video editing software Shotcut for the first time here.

The original video footage was shot in 2.7K, I rendered it down to 1080p for better file size and a picture will fewer grain effects.

I used a white balance filter to get rid of the very warm light from the pool lights, which worked really well.

I used color grading to increase the brightness in the darker sections of the video by 10% (mainly her wetsuit).

And I used an audio filter to dampen down some weird audio creaks that occurred here and there.

I experimented with a grain reduction filter for another video but as much as it helped with that grain noise….it blurred the picture. So I decided against it.

I also experimented with a sharpness filter to increase the sharpness…but that grained the picture in return 😆 ….So I decided against that as well.

 

If you have some serious knowledge of video editing:

Any help is welcome as I am pretty much a newbie to this!

So far I just cut videos for the most part with extremely simple tools like Freemake video editor. And I played with the Windows Movie Maker.

I promised the participants that I won’t give away the raw footage, and I will keep that promise (actually stated in the contracts).

But perhaps some of you have some tricks in your sleeves 😉

I will work on my Shotcut skills and perhaps I will make another version of this video with different editing settings if it can be improved remarkably.

I hope you like this video!

In the next week, I will post 2 or 3 new videos…
