About ZMF Underwater Film Production

ZMF is a specialist underwater film and stills production company, based just outside London.

We provide underwater film and stills sequences for commercials, TV, drama and movies alike, shooting on location or in specialised underwater film studios, with full specialist production facilities that are associated with the job. This includes lighting (topside or underwater), specialist safety crew, and boating requirements (rib or hard hull) to suit.

Zac is fully HSE compliant and so is the experienced team he works with and we look forward to speaking with you about your underwater production very soon.

Camera kit - Arri Alexa Mini

We use a Nauticam housing for a Alexa Mini. This supports Alexa's own WCU4, 3 axis lens control system through 30-45m long hard wired cables from surface to camera, and the kit comes with glass flat and dome ports for different focal lengths.

The 3 axis control allows the focus puller to control focus, iris, zoom and to turn the camera over. The WCU4 system allows complete access to the camera menu settings for fast changes underwater.

Picture to surface is through a 30- 45m long HDSDI cable and there is an optional 45m long 24v power cable into the housing allowing batteries to be hot swapped and avoiding the camera powering down.

Lenses up to 120mm diameter can be supported inside the housing which supports a modular ring build on the front end to accurately fit the length of different cinema lenses.

Camera kit - Gates/Red

Alternatively we own and shoot with a Gates Red Epic Dragon or Weapon combination at 6K or 8K with remote follow focus control to surface. Port options are 8 or 10 inch dome port or flat mineral glass ports. All optimised to accommodate cinema and stills lenses. The housing is a Gates Deep Weapon housing which is ultra reliable.

Zac is fully HSE compliant and so is the team he works with and we look forward to speaking with you about your underwater production very soon.
