What happens when a camera operator and a key grip / photographer are on a film set and chat during a break? They find out they have they same passion; being underwater!
Before you know it they jumped together on this epic underwater journey and founded Wet Set Films, exclusively for underwater work for features, tv shows, commercials and documentaries. We work with Hydroflex housings as well as, a specially for de film industry developed, Gates housing. For the smaller rigs we use Aquatica
