Undersea Currents

This stunning video shows free diver Guillaume Néry ‘flying’ through undersea currents, in the Tiputa pass, North of Tahiti…

Guillaume: «Just like in Free Fall, the location is the starting point of the project. A dive in the Tiputa Pass in Rangiroa, in the Tuamotu Archipelago (French Polynesia)… and suddenly, I have this idea: to use the strong current during the rising tide to create the visual effect of a body in orbit around a star. The idea was launched and became an obsession. We had to come back at the end of our great journey to Polynesia to shoot this movie. Thanks to the support of the diving club Y AKA Plongée Rangiroa, we needed 3 half-days to film all the images.»
