Liquid Media's commitment to Quality
Since the start of our business we have always strived to provide the best service, It's something we've become very well known for. And for this reason we limit the amount of Pro Underwater Video courses and internships every month, its not about who does the most and its about giving the best opportunities to our customers to learn and also to spend time filming what they want to see. Some of our competitors will have 5 or 6 people diving and trying to film the same subject matter, which must be really frustrating.

The New Season
2012 was a fantastic year, with some very talented Underwater Video trainee's and insane amount of Whale Sharks spotted through the year. And it continues into 2013, with lots of Whale Shark sightings already, with plenty of course already booked for the season, lets see what the new year brings.
This is one of our affiliated Dive Resorts, Coral Grand Divers is located on Sairee Beach and is where we conduct our training programs. With a team of professional instructors and a good ratio of customers its a great place to learn not just diving but also the skills necessary to become a Professional Resort videographer.
It's possible to start your diving here with courses running from PADI Open water diver to professional levels such as PADI Dive Master or even Dive Instructor and what a beautiful resort to work with.
Situated right on the North end of Sairee Beach, its location is away from the noise yet just a short stroll down the beach to bars and restaurants. With two Swimming pools, one for divers and one for guests. During PADI Diver courses its possible to get really good deals on rooms and bungalows.
So if you are coming to Koh Tao and don't already have the necessary dive certifications to take your Underwater Videography course don't worry its possible to take further training here our nice sunny tropical paradise.
Whale Shark Season 2012

The Whale Sharks are here!
We are often asked whats the best time to dive Koh Tao, well conditions are generally really good all year round. But if your intention is to see a "Big Spotty Fish" well than April to May is the best time to be here and this year certainly hasn't disappointed.
For the last two weeks we've had Whale Shark sightings nearly everyday, which to be honest is great for business and we are having a great time getting stock footage of these beautiful creatures. Our latest Underwater Video Intern Georg from Germany has been lucky enough to film Whale Sharks on a number of his dives.
The footage in the video above was shot during one dive on the 1st of May by Alan Tansey, " I was trying to get something different from all the shots other videographers get, I don't encourage chasing the Whale sharks as it just scares them away, so the best plan is to keep calm and think about your shots and I wanted to add nice foreground images rather than sticking in its face like the others do"
This footage was shown on Thai TV Channel 5 on the 4th of May including an Interview with Alan about his experiences diving on Koh Tao over the last 10 years.

Final Cut X arrives on Koh Tao.
Liquid Media has been using Apple's Final Cut Pro & Studio for more than a decade and now are proud to announce we are the first Underwater Videography company on Koh Tao to offer Final Cut X. And for the beginning of the new Season will be offering a Choice of 3 editing applications to our Underwater Video courses, Final Cut X, Final Cut Pro 7 and Adobe Premiere (the later can be used on both PC & MAC).
We are still offering the previous version of Final Cut as some users still prefer the workflow of the classic Application, Adobe Premiere can be run on both PC or Mac and is also available to give students the choice between a Mac or PC. Even though our preference is to Apple Mac and Final Cut Pro, we are the only company offering a full range of computer editing suites.
Frog fish fever

Froggy Fever on Koh Tao.
We have two new Frog fish or Angler Fish at one of our local dive sites, very close to each other. We are all excited by the discovery, they are very rare for our area and you have more chance of seeing a Whale Shark than finding one of these illusive masters of camouflage.
We are trying to keep the location quite and we don't want a developing circus around these little guys and we intend to limit our own contact with them too, in the hope they'll stick around.
Frog fish get their name because of the resemblance to a Frog when they walk. They are actually predators and use a small lure located on their forehead to attract small fish closer. They come in many different shapes and sizes and are very difficult to find, they can also over the course of days change color to match the surrounding background.
