Portugal’s Krypton Films, in collaboration with production company Moonlighting and marine support company Frog Squad, recently succeeded in filming what they claim to be South Africa’s first ever underwater time slice for an Aqua Das Pedras mineral water commercial.

Led by Director Augusto Fraga and helped by time slice technician Jono O’Connel and Frog Squad photographer Jason Martin, they put together an underwater bullet time rig that consisted of 28 Canon T3i’s and a Phantom for slow motion video footage.

All of these cameras were kept safe using DiCAPac underwater housings as they captured NCIS actress Daniella Ruah performing an underwater dance routine in a specialized diving tank at the Simonstown naval base.

Here’s how the ad turned out:
