This is one of the nicest hottest title sequences I have seen in a long time. The style and treatment really appeals to me along with just about everything else about it. I was very excited to learn that it was done by Sydney based Patrick Clair and his studio Antibody.

There is a great making of at the Art of the Title which is worth checking out. I also recommend having a browse through Antibodies site its full of great work.

The model of the cranes on the dock are sick with lighting and post the entire thing is completely believable. Check out the video below.
