NAME Stuart Cove AGE 45 MUSTWORTHINESS With more than 100 films
and commercials on his resume, Cove, who lives in the Bahamas, is
one of the world's most sought-after shark whisperers. But no gig
has tested his skills more than ''Open Water,'' the low-budget horror
flick that sparked a feeding frenzy at this year's Sundance.
Dubbed '''Jaws' meets 'The Blair Witch Project,''' the movie stars
Blanchard Ryan and Daniel Travis as vacationers who get stranded
in shark-infested waters. There were no computer-generated
special effects -- just 30-odd Caribbean reef sharks. SURVIVING A
SHARK ATTACK ''Stay still. Don't grab the sharks. If they bump
into you, don't push them away.'' SHARKS THAT SCARE HIM MOST
''There are probably more sharks in the movie business than there
are in the ocean.'' NEXT ''Open Water'' hits theaters Aug. 6.
