Members of crew filming Aqua Tricks

A crew of five people from Mexico and Spain arrived in San Pedro Monday afternoon  to begin shooting a new educational video - Aqua Tricks. This Spanish television program is targeted for the entire family, especially children, and will focus on the marine life of Belize. This is a joint collaboration between Mexico and Spain, who have united to make educational videos. The program is expected to be released sometime in September or October of this year and will be aired on the Spanish speaking channel Antena Tres of Spain.

    The crew consists of Beatrice Ruiz, who conducts the program; Camilla Villegas, in charge of production; and photographers, Manuel and German Lascano and David Torres. Larry and Suzannne Parker of Larry Parker's Reef Divers and their staff will be the crew's diving instructors and guides while in San Pedro. The crew will dive and film the Blue Hole in addition to shallow dives. They will also attempt to film manatees and other water-related scenery. Mr. Manuel Lascano told the San Pedro Sun the reason they chose San Pedro as the film location was due to the amazing underwater beauty found along the reef of San Pedro. They also appreciated the way the people of San Pedro carefully protect their natural resources, especially the reef. Mr. Lascano continued, "I would like to thank all those who are helping to make this film possible, especially Antena Tres. They have been instrumental in helping to promote places like San Pedro through educational TV programs for the entire family."

    While in San Pedro the crew is staying at Mata Chica Resort and will depart on Sunday, May 11th, 2000.
