Main title treatment for the short film titled "Fish" by RJ Cutler.

We used a laser cutter to cut the text out of wood, then dipped the letters in paint. The letters were then dropped into a fish tank and photographed at 120 fps on the RED Epic.

About the film:

Celebrity chef Jon Shook, best known for his carnivore-pleasing creations at the LA hot spot Animal, has just opened a new restaurant—and this time, the focus in on seafood. Witness the journey from ocean to table as, in the course of one long day, Jon goes fishing off the coast of Southern California with a local fisherman, returns to his new restaurant to craft a dish around his catch of the day, and serves his creation to another packed house at the hottest new restaurant in LA.
