“Marco Polo” Theme

Featured Video Play Icon

Netflix’s new original series “Marco Polo” has a distinctive and fluidsy title sequence. The artistic team at the Mill created the effect by painting  images in water atop dense paper before introducing Japanese sumi-ink. Using high-speed photography, they filmed the diffusion of the ink into the water as it reveals the larger picture. There’s a great behind-the-scenes break down and video over at their blog.
