What we offer
Zac Macaulay Films is owned by Zac, based near London has a small number of specialised crew dedicated to the production of underwater filming services, specialist underwater lighting, boating requirements (rib or hard hull) and an underwater safety team all under one roof.
Zac works as either an underwater DOP or a camera operator providing underwater film and stills sequences for Film, TV and commercials alike, shooting on location or in specialised underwater film studios, with full specialist production facilities that are associated with the job.
We and our team are fully HSE qualified.
We have over 20 years experience working with specialist studios, riggers and lighting gaffers as an underwater DOP & cameraman. We are as happy shooting in purpose-built flooded studios, as on location in open water.
Kit / Red / Gates
Crucially we own and operate with a Red Epic Dragon (6K) or Helium (8K) housed in a Gates Deep Weapon Housing combination including live view feed and follow focus to the surface. Port options are 8 or 10 inch dome port or flat mineral glass ports, as well as the ultra large size domes for split shots.
Kit / Arri / Gates
We can also offer the Arri Alexa Mini with its 3 axis control over focus, iris and zoom if required.
Owning our own cameras, lenses and housings allows us to provide a cost effective solution for your underwater production sequence.
Panasonic GH5 / Seacam
We also own and shoot with the new Panasonic GH5 which competes with some pro movie cameras in terms of quality, shooting 4K at 25, 30, 50 or 60p also in 1080 at 100 or 180p. It also has built in image stabiliser, great for smooth shooting.
We will look forward to hearing from you.
