The movie Nomad, starring Estella Warren,(Planet of the Apes, Driven, Kangaroo Jack) a modern day mythological adventure where opening scenes discover her character living much like a mermaid in the depths of the ocean.

Working as the Assistant Director:
• Developed underwater rigs and safety procedures for propelling breath holding stunt doubles through the water at depth creating the illusion of effortless mermaid- like movement.
• Incorporated knowledge of marine environment to develop story line and maximize shooting opportunities.
• Coordinated filming efforts with dolphin trainers to block scenes with trained dolphins in open water.
• Freediving skills were essential in obtaining dramatic wide-angle scenes of mermaid ascending from extreme depths.
