Dave Webb might be willing to allow some of his footage to be used - I can drop him a line.

Haven't the Freems got some decent footage? Their film quality is usually excellent.

Possibly, if you have a contact for them and could let them know it would be appreciated, thanks J.

Have just sent him an email & asked him to glance at this topic.

Whilst I can't help out with this, I have been fascinated with the idea of lighting up Titan for recording. It sounds like a major project that would require previous planning and many people involved for lighting all the way down. If there is anyone willing to explain to me how they have done this in the past or would try to do it, please PM me! I am so curious  :thumbsup:

It was done when Kate Humble went there as part of the "Extreme Caving" programme, a number of years ago, if that's any help? You might find it lurking on You Tube?

I have helped on a filming trip before, my mate abseiled to the event horizon with a really powerful light for an angle from the window... Although we could see the whole of the upper shaft in great detail, including Jim in mid space like a spider on a thread, there was not enough for the camera being used!

I now think the Kate Humble programme was in 2007 and was actually called "Ultimate Caving".

This gives a little more information and a more precise date.

It was on BBC 2.

Looks like it was Gavin Newman who did the Titan filming:

Maybe contact him and ask?

I think hiring one of the spiffy new low-light cameras would be required for something like this, which would possibly be easier than trying to find suitably bright lights, with the attendant battery problems - as Brains pointed out, our eyes have built-in low-light adjustment, but cameras are not so good. Alternatively, construct a waterwheel in the Cascades, connected to some sort of fantasy electronic storage device and have a big plug hanging off the traverse always ready for action. I'm sure Chocolate Fireguard can advise ;)

I've passed the details on to Dave Webb, and he's got in touch with John H.  :thumbsup:
