Combat Diver

12 young men set out on a journey to prove to themselves and the Navy that they are capable of completing the most demanding training the Finnish armed forces have to offer. The main characters experience tumultuous times in succeeding and sometimes failing their goals.

The documentary reveals an intimate perpective on elite task-force training, including plenty of underwater footage–from the safety of the practice pool to the dark murky waters of the Finnish archipelago.

Benjamin worked as co-writer, film editor and sound designer. Originally “Under Pressure” was edited as a 3 x 52 minute series, and later into a 92 minute film.
