DID YOU KNOW?
The “Blue Water, White Death” Shark Cage at the Tennessee Aquarium was designed by the film’s director Peter Gimbel. It's on loan from underwater filmmaker, Nick Caloyianis, who was friends with Gimbel. The cage was designed to be an “underwater elevator” for Gimbel’s film crew.
A similar cage was used to capture the underwater scenes for “Great White Shark 3D.” D.J. Roller, the film’s director of underwater photography, said the cage used for “Great White Shark 3D” was built based on Gimbel’s design. “It’s very much like the one you have at the Aquarium,” said Roller. “It has buoyancy chambers so we could drive it up and down in the water column. If people step into your cage, they have a sense of what we used.”
