Director of Photography Ian Seabrook
In episode sixteen, host Brett Stanley is chatting with Ian Seabrook, a Canadian underwater Camera Operator and Director of Photography who spends most of his time working between Canada, America, and the UK. His work includes underwater scenes in features like Deadpool 2, Batman vs Superman, Lost in Space, and Pirates of the Caribbean.
They talk about learning underwater photography from National Geographic legend David Doubilet, the importance of an open and sharing film community, how a great assistant can make life easier, and nearly being crushed by logs and rolling icebergs in the arctic.
Keep an ear out for Ian’s crack at an Aussie accent – it’s pretty good!
