"The rise of modern print culture The printing press and the relatively wide availability of printed materials further undermine the importance of the 'local community' in ... Feudal societies based on face-to-face loyalties and oral oaths begin to give way to nation-states and to nationalism based on a shared printed language." Marshall McLuhan: Theoretical elaborations

Fishy Film Tales From Malta


Smiles everybody, smiles. Welcome to the fantasy island of Malta the SFX facility.


"Malta is world-renowned for its water SFX facility situated in the south-eastern side of the island.  Malta Film Studios (MFS) boasts of one indoor tank and two large exterior water tanks situated along the coast and therefore enjoying a natural horizon. They are amongst the largest in the world. "

"This Shallow Tank was built in 1964 when the facility was created. It is the most popular tank and used mainly for surface water filming and also elaborate storm special effects. Such movies as "Captain Phillips", "Orca The Killer Whale", "White Squall" and "Cutthroat Island" were filmed here. The overspilling effect when the tank is full creates a seamless horizon between the tank water and the open sea. To understand how the SFX works in this tank, we highly recommend you visit our video page here."

"USEFUL TIP: If you or your director has never filmed in a SFX Water Tank, we advise to watch our videos"

"Malta Story is a 1953 British war film, directed by Brian Desmond Hurst, which is based on the heroic air defence of Malta during the Siege of Malta in the Second World War.[1] The film uses real and unique footage of the locations at which the battles were fought and includes a love story between a RAF pilot and a Maltese girl, as well as the anticipated execution of her brother, caught as an Italian spy. The character of "Peter Ross" is apparently loosely based on that of Adrian Warburton."
