Sundance Pools’ ‘Jetswim’ Features In Assassin’s Creed Movie Aylesbury-based fibreglass pool specialists Sundance Pools UK Ltd have revealed that their Jetswim 4 metre pool was used in the filming of the just-released movie Assassin’s Creed, starring Michael Fassbender. Assassin’s Creed is an action adventure film based on the popular video game franchise of the same name and the Jetswim appears in the film as an ethereal ‘recovery pool’ in a laboratory. The Sundance Pools team delivered the 4 metre one-piece pool to the worldfamous 007 Stage at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire back in November 2015. They then worked closely with the film production company’s art directors, special effects and construction teams and remained on site during three days of filming to monitor pool temperature and water balance. Manufactured in a custom grey colour with a bespoke filtration system, the above-ground spec pool was installed onto a platform built by the Assassin’s Creed construction team. The special effects team fitted bespoke lighting to the pool bottom and a stainless-steel border. Company Director, Ed West said: “Our time working with Pinewood was a fantastic experience and unlike any project we have encountered before. Collaborating so closely with a film production company, timeframes

were extremely precise and everything had to run like absolute clockwork, from delivery and collection timings to water temperature and chemical balances within the water. Filming days are long and studio time is extremely precious, so we were available and on-hand to deal with all aspects of installation and pool maintenance 24/7.”

Having had its 15 minutes of fame, the custom grey Jetswim 4 metre pool is now back in the possession of Sundance Pools and is for sale. Sundance Pools 01296 715071
