The Depth of a Concept
This entire concept is amazing both on a physical level and a technical level. Free diving while underwater is quite a task unto itself. The diver holds his breath for about 5 minutes or so round trip. This seems to be shot from multiple cameras in a seamless dive. I thought to myself that this logistically, must have been tough for the camera men as well as the diver. The answer comes in the credits, there is just one camera woman! But this is where the art in editing and shooting comes in. The diver and the camera woman were able to make something so inspiring through there edits and there actions. I don't want to ruin it all but the coolest part is when the diver ascends to the surface!
