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 the Scubapro MK17, 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

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!

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 in the VIP club, 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.).

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 😉

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.

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

And it is still available there during January!

Here is a quick overview of the content of January:

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…
