Standard camera, light and grip packages can be sourced either from Malta or the European mainland depending on the type of equipment, the scale of the production and any other productions shooting simultaneously on the island. The reality is that professional top-end film equipment in Malta is limited and there is generally not enough to fully service more than one international production at best. However daily flights exist from nearby European cities and attractive packages can be achieved.
We have extensive experience working on underwater shoots at sea or in water tanks. We work with only the best underwater teams, of which there is really only a handful in Europe.
For underwater shoots we believe in adopting the most versatile, efficient and cost-effective methods .
Through our associates we can supply housings that can go as deep as 100m. The housings are for Alexa SXT, Alexa Mini, Amira, Phantom Flex and Red Weapon. They accept master primes, ultra primes and light weight zooms and select anamorphic lenses. Transport is light and can be checked-in on a regular flight.
