Directed by Michael Jordan - These are two reenactment segments from the Forensic Files episode entitled "Fishing for the Truth." The scene takes place in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico on a small shrimp boat. The captain and deckhand find themselves caught in the middle of a terrible storm that causes the ship to sink. Only the deckhand survives to tell the story. The problem for investigators is that he tells two completely different tales.

Production Note: We had to design a fake shrimp boat that would be able to sink on our cue, then float again for the next take. The boat was placed in a 33,000 gallon tank that we constructed in an airplane hanger. For more information on how we shot this scene, check out the behind the scenes videos at ForensicFiles.com
