The process of underwater filming can be complex, time consuming and hazardous, but when it’s done well, it can provide the world with images which inspire, thrill and educate. At Scarlet View Media, we are passionate about capturing marine footage in creative, cinematic and engaging ways which elevate both our own, and your productions to the highest levels possible.
We can handle everything required to get you the footage you need for your underwater projects, from assembling the dive team, advising on legal responsibilities and ensuring full safety and risk assessments are carried out, to actually capturing the footage itself, with our award winning In-House Film-Maker and Cinematographer, David Diley.
In line with UK regulations, Scarlet View Media are a HSE commercially qualified Media Diving service provider, if your production is for a UK based network or production company and/or you’re filming within 12 miles of the UK’s coastline, you are legally required to ensure any commercial contracted professionals comply with HSE guidelines.

With a track record of providing high end marine content in both our own films (Of Shark and Man, A Ray of Light, A Ray of Light II, In Search of Angels) and for commercial clients such as Apeks, Beqa Adventure Divers, Title Role Productions, Asociacion Ondine and Palma Aquarium, we have built a reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting production teams for underwater content.
We are not only professional, motivated, passionate and technically aware, we also understand the film-making process. We are film-makers ourselves which means we understand the nuances and importance of storytelling, it’s what we do. Our expertise means we can simply turn up and shoot what you say if that’s what you want, or we can work with you to design sequences based on creative ways to deliver your message or the emotion you want to convey to your audience in the most powerful and effective manner. Throughout the whole process, we work alongside you to achieve your vision. Your goal, is our goal.
Scarlet View Media’s reputation was built on our work with sharks, an area in which we specialise and have a great deal of experience. Not only are we experts at capturing “stunning” imagery of these incredible animals, we also have specialist knowledge of the animals themselves, meaning we can advise on all aspects of any productions involving sharks. We work closely with various operators around the world, with whom we have strong relationships, to get the footage we do and it is testament to the way we work that those operators continue to work with us and recommend Scarlet View to others.
We uphold a specific set of values related to quality, professionalism, ethics and safety ensuring that our involvement in any production is designed to ensure you get the best for your money, everybody is safe and happy, everything is ethically sound and everybody enjoys the process. Our testimonials don’t all mention how much our clients enjoy working with us by coincidence!
