Right Guard

When the offer of this job came-up our client was adamant that we had to be the only company to tackle it (see our logo!). "We want you to do a Moses and part the waves" they said.

The most logical solution for us was to build a 1000 gallon steel tank in our own film studio to avoid any costly transportation and lengthy set-up time at another location. We did, of course, check-out the foundations of the building first as this equated to 10,000lbs of water.

With a massive 3-phase pump cadged from the National Physical Laboratory and some inventive though complex plumbing, we parted the waves as a scaled sequence and to add to the illusion we built an identical model of the marble hall surrounding the pool where the location shoot took place.
