VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of an Underwater Filmmaker is like.
Underwater filmmakers need to know how to scuba dive safely. And there is a LOT of equipment needed for underwater filmmaking! Here’s a fun activity to try:
STEP 1: Do an online image search to find the following equipment needed by underwater filmmakers:
- Oxygen tank
- Waterproof video camera
- Diving mask
- Depth gauge
- Dive computer
- Underwater flash/strobe
Right click to download and save each image.
STEP 2: Print the images and cut them out.
STEP 3: Draw a body on a piece of paper (stick figure is fine) and imagine it is you as an underwater filmmaker!
STEP 4: Use the image cutouts to ‘dress’ yourself! Can you figure out where each piece of equipment goes and what it does?
STEP 5: Share a picture of your ‘dressed’ underwater filmmaker in the Student Showcase to build your resume!
