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:

+ a short teaser:
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.
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 😉
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.
Where to watch it?
Updated: November 1
The video was available in the VIP club in September alongside the other content….as it is under 4 minutes of running time!
It will be available again in the VIP club in March!
Here is a quick overview of the content of this month:
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:
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!
I will post (at least) 5 more videos from that video shoot in the next weeks.
2 more in October, 2 more in November, and the last one in December.
Don’t know when I post my personal favorite exactly…yet.
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 😉
