  • Description

    "Whilst it's grey and dark overhead, let's take a little trip to Florida - where a graceful expert is going to show us some new diving ideas." Unusual shot of a diving board - the camera is partly underwater. The diver swims towards the camera once he is in the water and we see him underwater.

    "They called that the "Swan Dive", but our slow-motion camera turned it into an even more graceful example." High angle shot above the diving board showing a man diving in slow motion. We see the dive again in slow motion from the pool side. "Doesn't this make you want to get into the sunny water again?" Underwater filming - woman swims towards the camera then does lots of somersaults.

    "And this back dive, too" High angle shot above the diving board showing a backwards dive (a woman I think). "And how about a bit of fun below the surface?" A group of girls are filmed underwater struggling for a beach ball. The girls then swim towards the camera. The girls swim along in a kind of underwater conga - they link their feet around each others' waists.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 600.
