Video from the Deep Underwater Camera by Rob Beaman, research scientist in marine geology at James Cook University, Cairns, Australia. Feather stars live fixed to a substrate (sediment, other organisms) by small appendices called cirri. To move about, they free themselves by opening the cirri and moving their arms in an organized fashion that releases them. They rise in the water column and move a few meters then drop like a parachute. The video shows several Antarctic feather stars swimming, here Promachocrinus kerguelensis. It can move as a flight reflex when confronted with a potential predator or an environmental disturbance, due here to the approaching camera. Swimming time is brief (a few seconds) because the energy required to mobilize the arm muscles is quite substantial.

Rob Beaman, research scientist in marine geology in Cairns (James Cook University): "The camera is flying along the edge of an iceberg scour. Over time, icebergs float over the shallow seafloor and where the bottom of the icebergs touch the seafloor, they leave wide scour marks that are many meters wide and several meters deep. The icebergs crush and kill the marine life in these scour marks. The video shows a relict scour mark that has been recolonised by benthic marine life." Marc Eléaume, researcher at the Museum in Paris, specialist in crinoids: "The benthic macrofauna seems relatively poor and fairly widely dispersed. Some crinoids and a white sea star make up the mobile fauna. At the end of the sequence we can see two swimming shapes: these are crinoids of the sub-family Heliometrinae and more precisely Promachocrinus kerguelensis. My observations at the Dumont d'Urville base taught me that only this species flees from the passage of an ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle)."

This is actually one of the first scenes ever shot for Batman Date With Destiny that was later scrapped due to it not fitting with new Director Cary Dalton's changes in Adam Campbell's Story for the film. Its still a comical exchange between an unmasked Harley Quinn originally played by Amanda Willoughby and Special Agent Jordan Hall played by James Magnum Cook who is also the Producer of Batman Date With Destiny. It was filmed inside of the Holiday Inn University Plaza Hotel in Bowling Green, Kentucky with permission from the management. One of the things that happen during filming is the breaking of one of the Hotel Restaurant Water Glasses when Magnum slams his arms down on the table so hard it breaks the glass. Amanda Willoughby now models under the stage name of Karol O' Hara and is on One Model Place under that name. She did great work as Harley Quinn during this scene. The entire fan film was shot on location in Kentucky noting that most fan films in larger length have been shot in large locations like LA and New York City.
