    Hey everyone,

    I hope you caught the first 2 episodes of "Quest for sunken Warships" on the Military channel The newest episode on the USS Oriskany will be primering tomorrow night at 10pm! If you havent seen any of them they are ALL SHOWING tomorrow night WED NOV 7th. Starting at 8pm on the Military channel.

    Hope you all tune in and watch. They are well done and hey its a diving show! This one will focus on the Mighty O in Floridas panhandle, its the largest artifical reef in the united states at just over 900ft long. We shot video from the bow and props at 218 feet up to the control tower in the island, we peneterate to check out the flare locker where a fire happend during the Vietnam war plus so much more. This show brings in mixed gas, rebreathers, and DPV's to be able to capture the entire wreck.

    Tune in WED night 10pm and ENJOY!

    Becky

    Were you involved in the filming? I saw some of your work, I believe in ADM, and frankly it was stunning. Hope to catch you in cave country sometime. Maybe get a professional photo taken by a celebrity photographer/videographer...

    Twist my arm to take a photo! haha I was involved in the videography. I shot both underwater and topside video for the show including stills whenever I snuck in the chance (which was often) =) It was a fun and a great learning experience to be involved in a production like this. I hope we get a good response and every show is differant. I havent seen the Oriskany episode yet, but I know from shooting that we worked well as a team and since we focused on one wreck we covered SO much area which should make it a great show.

    If you didnt catch the Truk episode it will air at 9pm just before the Oriskany at 10pm =) We really do need more diving shows out there.

    Thanks for the compliments, I was a featured photogrpher in an ADM issue, hopfully more to come!

    Hey thanks! I did check the schedule today and did not see any listings soon. There are 4 episodes is that correct? Its kinda cool that the latest issue of Scuba Diving magazine featured an article on Micronesia and went over some of the same wrecks. I'm sure I'll catch them again or get them on DVD. Thanks again and Safe diving!!!

    Really love the show!

    I was actually in the background of one of the scenes during the USS Murphy episode. The boat I dive on (The Gypsy Blood) is docked right next to Bill Cleary's "Depth Charge" and I remember them filming one Saturday or Sunday moring earlier this year. During some of the b-roll shots during the Murphy episode you can see us over Dan's shoulder getting the boat ready for a charter.

    Almost famous!

    I enjoyed the episode on Cape Hatteras. Maybe because I have been on most of the wrecks covered in that episode. And did them from one of the two dive operators featured as well.
