I am currently working on a short film and one of the shots is a POV from within a bath full of water. The aim is to look up from beneath the surface of the water to the character on the edge of the tub. If any one has any advice on how to achieve this shot please let me know.

We will be using an Arri SR2 and shooting on Kodak 500t with a Zeiss 25mm lens.

Thanks

you could shoot through a flat, shallow glass pan full of water set above the camera. Or maybe even place a mirror in the tub (at whatever depth that works) and shoot into that

sorry, i just noted that you're using an sr w/ a 25... the pan probably would be a bad idea in a real tub, but might work with a rigged "fake" tub edge....
