DVD Review – Cage Dive (2017)

Cage Dive, 2017.

Directed by Gerald Rascionato.

Starring Joel Hogan, Josh Potthoff, Megan Peta Hill, Pete Valley, Mark Fell, and Christopher Callen.

Synopsis:

Three friends go shark cage diving in a bid to get on a TV reality show, only for things to go very wrong.

In some territories Cage Dive comes with the prefix of Open Water 3 which, if you are familiar with the original Open Water, should clue you in to what you are going to get, and that is a shark-based found footage movie. Whether that fills you with joy or dread is a matter of personal preference of course but the fact remains that found footage movies filmed at sea are few and far between so, at the very least, you may get to see something that the seemingly endless production line of ghost/haunting found footage movies don’t offer as they go through the motions

Q&A: Director Gerald Rascionato & Actor Joel Hogan Discuss Open Water 3: Cage Dive

If you've ever wanted to experience the thrill of swimming with the sharks without the risk of dismemberment, then you might want to take the plunge with Open Water 3: Cage Dive, which is in theaters and available On-Demand and on Digital HD beginning August 11th from Lionsgate. For our latest Q&A feature, we recently caught up with director Gerald Rascionato and star Joel Hogan to discuss the making of their new water-centric movie.

Gerald, the found footage approach to this story makes the viewer feel like they’re swimming with the sharks. How did you go about filming the first-person Pov shots?

Gerald Rascionato: I wanted the film to look authentic, but I made sure to get a Sony hand-cam that had a very good self-stabilizing lens. Even though the film is shot Pov, I didn’t want the footage to look too shaky like in some other found footage movies.
