The large water tank at Malta’s main film facility was used to produce impressive storm scenes
Filming for ARABIA FELIX - A History of Oman ended with a spectacular high-speed shoot at the large water tank of Malta’s Mediterranean Film Studios. Frame rates of up to 1500 fps were used to visualize the impact of massive waves on an early medieval sailing vessel and its crew. Malta was the last location on a production plan that involved shoots in thirteen countries - Oman, Dubai, Sharjah, USA, Portugal, United Kingdom, Germany, Poland, Italy, Tanzania, Singapore and China.
State-of-the-art pyrotechnics were used to acquire action footage for episodes 2 and 3 of ARABIA FELIX - A History of Oman
The Malta shoot began with a series of action scenes that combined high speed filming and pyrotechnics. The filming took place at the Fort Ricasoli site, which is part of the Mediterranean Film Facilities on the island of Malta. Local talent was used to reenact the Portuguese attack on Qalhat in 1508 as well as the Machui shoot-out on October 19th, 1856 during the palace revolution on Zanzibar.
