Frank Tonmann, surface cameraman


If, according to the script, the commissioner is drowning in his car in a harbor basin during a chase and then freeing himself, the author has created an exciting scene. For this, however, an experienced stuntman should be available, because this requires specialists who have trained, planned, precisely sequenced and carried out such daring situations hundreds of times. We have specialists on our team, as well as the videographers and underwater photographers who know that the footage should be perfect on the first try. To show the sinking of a ship from different perspectives and from different positions on and in the vessel gives the feeling of having been in there. We were there and documented the last voyage of a ship with breathtaking images with 14 cameras.


And even the question: "Can James Bond shoot an opponent underwater with his Walther?" Can only be answered without any doubt if you have carried out this attempt yourself. We even tried a Kalashnikov. The result was surprising ...


And if it's just a challenge to clarify unbelievable, wacky or somewhat crazy-sounding questions: We create, design, plan the details, provide permits, train the protagonists and implement them skilfully and professionally. Can you relax with a cup of tea in an air bubble down in a wreck at 20 meters depth ... ??? We know it!
