Underwater Pompeii

Client: Lion Television

Network: PBS/C4


This PBS and C4 documentary tells the story of the submerged Roman holiday retreat Baiae, where Emperors and the super-rich enjoyed lavish parties, sought out love affairs and plotted against their political rivals.

Liquid created sequences that recreated the lost streets and palatial villas in a minimal stylised look and feel filled with sunlight cutting through the waves above.
