In a bid to create a underwater environment that provides clear conditions for cameras and safe conditions for actors, an Auckland film studio has created a unique indoor dive tank.

Kumeu Film Studios, based in Auckland, has created a chlorine-free 5m deep and 18m in diameter dive tank that is ideal for actors spending long periods of time underwater capturing the perfect scene.

The system has already been put to work filming a scene for United States drama series The Shannara Chronicles.
