Video: Fishing under Ice

Posted by Avital Pinnick on January 11, 2012

This amazing video is filmed upside-down, under the ice of Lake Saarijärvi in Vaala, Finland. It wasn’t easy finding information about the director or the video, but I did find this article on DiscoveryNews (Jan. 4, 2012). It looks like a lot of fun!

Credits and description from YouTube:

Fisherman: Eelis Rankka
Fisherman’s friend: Tommi Salminen
Boy with the balloon: Jukka Pelttari

Camera and editing: Juuso Mettälä
Manuscript by Juuso Mettälä and Eelis Rankka

Safety divers: Esa Vuoppola and Juhana Heino

Music: Stefano Mocini: The end of the doubs

Couple of things about this video:
Camera I used was Sony HDR-SR11 with Amphibico HD Elite housing.
The Wheelbarrow was saved from the bottom of the lake and I have used it many times after that.
The rubber duck and the balloon are also home with me.
None of the divers got any permanent damage either.
And yes, we had a lot of fun making this video.
