Waiting for the Sea

On the set of a WWII movie filmed in Iceland. Inflatable bodies used to emulate real soldiers.


Our staging area. A few water dolls to be used as floating dead marines in a recreation of the famous battle of Iwo Jima. We called them water dolls which are actually inflatable body parts rigged together in uniforms and filled with the right amount of water to sink the way a real person would. It took a week to build 30 of these due to the rigging of all of the components, lack of sleep, and endless trouble shooting... Pain in the ass but worth every minute of it. This was taken with a Horizon s3 panoramic camera.
