Taboo

The opening titles for the thriller series establishes a nefarious tone, featuring people and objects languishing eerily underwater. Show co-creator and star Tom Hardy, along with the production team, shot and created a rough cut of a fully underwater sequence to which artists applied their craft, blending footage shot from different angles and in varying lighting conditions, composing shots for distinct effect and adding CG bubbles to create elegant transitions.
