Underwater Lighting III: Challenging Environments and Monkey Diving

This class will focus on lighting and working on dressed sets, overhead environments, confined spaces; and otherwise difficult situations. We will be focusing on special techniques such as monkey diving, backplate only, and underwater streamlining. Many of our underwater sets are composed of tight spaces, overhead environments, and other underwater hazards not suitable for the diver with purely recreational skills. Members who wish to learn to be shore support are welcome and encouraged to attend this class. If you wish to work in the water, you MUST be a certified diver and able to pass a basic medical questionnaire or have permission from a physician. The forms are available on the Training728 site. The Lighting Specific Dive Skills class or permission from the Instructor is required before taking this class.
