  • What is the timeframe or lead time required to mobilize a tank?
    Usually, 30 days is about the right time frame to deliver and construct the tank and be camera ready. We find the more lead time the better the results.
  • Will my location work for my project?
    Film Pools has placed tanks in some very complex and sensitive locations. Involving us for the location survey and tank placement will be beneficial to the overall results of your production. Almost any location is possible with good lead time and planning. We look at the location from the perspective of all departments including SPX, stunts, grip, lighting, and transport access.
  • Is there a staging area for trucks and equipment?
    This depends solely on your location. It is advisable to have a good working space around the tank installation area
  • What colour are the interior tank walls?
    Walls are standard black. We also have custom-made chemical resistant digital blue and green screens ready for use.
  • What is the tank/water access?
    This depends on the height of the tank. Sometimes existing structures, scaffolding or sea containers can be used.
  • How do you get large/heavy set pieces into the tank?
    Forklift, telehandler, chain motors or cranes are used to move set pieces in and out of the tank
  • Can tanks be built around constructed set builds?
    Yes, tanks can built around set pieces and flooded after.
  • Is engineering required?
    Water is heavy. Engineering approval is almost always required depending on location. Film Pools can arrange engineering approval.
  • What are the insurance requirements?
    Film Pools works with your production to ensure adequate insurance coverage so that everyone is protected.
