A beginner scuba diving student talks about his ups and downs while trying to earn his scuba certification in Atlanta.
It all started in 1985. NBC aired a 5 part series named Oceanquest. Al Giddings, a seasoned diver and underwater photographer, said he wanted to make a film in which he would express his own passion for diving by training someone with no dive experience. I’m not sure what captured my attention the most. It might have been the adventure, the scuba diving, the travel, or the sharks. Or maybe it was the student, Shawn Weatherly, a.k.a. Miss Universe 1980.
