WOW!! You're still reading! I probably missed a lot of Vancouver productions that had underwater scenes. I've tried to list all the water shows from the 21st century as well as from the '90s and even some from the '80s. You remember the '80s!! You should. The film industry in Vancouver was barely starting to take off in the '80s. Now we are the second largest film production center in North America and still growing. Keep up the good work, Vancouver; stay humble, and work hard. As Vancouver Key Grip Dave Gordon said long ago, "You are working on your reputation every day". Thank you Vancouver for the past 20 years and all the best for the next 20.
