a solution for this film...use D.O.D. footage not bad models

FULL FATHOM FIVE was a neat concept yet sub sets that didn't work and bad models hinder this film. They should have shot on a decommissioned WW 2 sub that are scattered across the USA. Insterad of bad effects DOD footage of subs and torpedo launches. This movie isn't a bad premise and the poster was neat yet, there was enough material here to re edit it with DOD footage and rerelease it on video. Many archives for film and video contain SPECTACULAR COLOR footage which can be accessed for a modest fee or for free. Had they used that type footage this film would have done better yet, was not a total loss. The sets are forgiveable yet with stronger footage this film would have scored more on the straight to video market. I guess it didn't do too bad.........what's with the piano thing? Is he his own one man band? I wonder he did it in Q the winged serpent too...I mean is it a commentary? Who knows.
