Shot in Acapulco on Agfa XTS400, Arri 3 and Canon
primes one of which came apart in the humidity giving an "interesting" diffused effect.
I tested every film from Kodak & Agfa on the recce by loading
them in my Nikon. I then had them printed on Kodak & Fuji stocks
and had various people rate them in order of preference. The winner
was XTS400 printed on Fuji with the same stock printed on Kodak
coming a close second. '48 printed on Kodak came third. I didn't
test Fuji camera stock because they didn't seem interested at the
time and I couldn't get any Agfa print stock.
We were working with a small unit and getting a camera crane to
the platform that the divers use was "interesting", especially
as we had to keep moving with the sun. Top shots could only be done
between 10am and noon, the lower shots of him watching had to be
done from noon to 2pm after which point we went to the bottom of
the other side of the cliff to shoot cutaways. A lot of moving of
