The Challenge: The primary challenge in shooting Mystique Sequence was navigating the breadth of the Montauk environment - from sea to sky. Filming under water was particularly challenging, as it meant our DP had to negotiate fast currents while attempting to capture the variety of footage necessary. We wanted to order to ensure a safe, but efficient and productive shoot that yielded a wide variety of footage, which would ultimately contribute to the emotional tone of the film. Turning the technicalities of the shoot into an authentic experience for the viewer was paramount.
The Solution: Accomplishing the Mystique Sequence shoot required a few essential elements - the first of which was a safety diver for the underwater sequences. This diver worked with our DP to support him through the quick changes in movement of the water, so he could safely operate the camera equipment. The home-base for these parts of the shoot was a dive boat. From this boat, we also had an extremely skilled drone operator who helped us to capture the vast aerial footage of the Montauk waters featured in the film. These technical and safety elements were integral to the success of the shoot.
