Pete Romano ASC, renowned underwater cinematographer, joins Vance and Nigel and shares his interesting career path, eventually working on a long list of iconic films including The Abyss, Titanic, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, The Call of the Wild, The Life Aquatic, and For Your Eyes Only. We get to go behind the scenes with Pete as he shares stories working with the likes of James Cameron and Tom Cruise. Pete shares how his company Hydroflex, makers of premier underwater camera housings and lighting, came to fruition after making his first housing while working at Industrial Light & Magic. He also recounts what may be the silliest, or stupidest, thing he’s ever done in his career.
Vance and Nigel get inspired discussing their recent work travel experiences, from Spain to the Pacific Northwest and the Caribbean. They share some laughs at the insanity of shooting in one city to look like another, and the challenge of casting the right faces for a location when you’re on the other side of the world. Nigel reveals the documentary he’s been working on, centered around a saloon that eventually became the heart of the grunge movement. In the last segment, Vance shares his insights on what it takes to be an underwater cinematographer or camera operator.
