Upside Down Filming Under Ice Creates Cool Video

This video may appear very strange to you if you don’t know what is going on. So we’ll tell you. 🙂  The camera and people in this video are underwater (under ice) and upside down. So everything that happens appears like its upright, but its not. That’s why when you see bubbles from the oxygen suits, the bubbles appear to be travelling down versus up. By filming this way, they can get some pretty neat and cool effects that fool the eye as you will see.

Upside Down Under Ice Video

Fishing under ice (ORIGINAL)

Some under ice views from beautiful lake Saarijärvi in Vaala, Finland

Fisherman: Eelis Rankka
Fisherman's friend: Tommi Salminen
Boy with the balloon: Jukka Pelttari

Camera and editing: Juuso Mettälä
Manuscript by Juuso Mettälä and Eelis Rankka

Safety divers: Esa Vuoppola and Juhana Heino

Couple of things about this video:
Camera I used was Sony HDR-SR11 with Amphibico HD Elite housing.
The Wheelbarrow was saved from the bottom of the lake and I have used it many times after that.
The rubber duck and the balloon are also home with me.
None of the divers got any permanent damage either.
And yes, we had a lot of fun making this video.
