Soul Surfer & John Leonetti

John Leonetti, ASC shot Piranha 3-D mainly on, above and underwater at Lake Havasu, Arizona. The film takes the audience on a journey with Elizabeth Shu as she portrays the sheriff of a small town who is fighting to save her children and other potential victims of flesh eating piranha that have invaded the lake. Leonetti shot Piranha 3-D in 35 mm anamorphic format with a single camera.

Innovative postproduction technology is being used to seamlessly convert the edited film to digital images in 3-D format. What do you do for an encore after shooting what is likely to be one of the scarier films slated for release in 2010? Answer: Leonetti is in Oahu, Hawaii preparing to shoot a film where seminal scenes take place on the Pacific Ocean. The script is a depiction of a true story.
