The studios belong to Lites, a company renting out technical material for film productions. Lites CEO Wim Michiels, a camera man himself, often shot takes for underwater scenes. He realised this took a lot of time and effort; a special film studio built for this purpose should make things less complicated.
The studio includes a water basin 9 metres deep, covering a surface of 480 square metres. "However, we also have the option of just flooding the whole studio to get a total surface of 1,250 square metres", explains Michiels. The studio is aimed at international film productions.
