In reality, Newport is a thriving hub for the arts. But it still struggles with a reputation for being shallow.   We urged people to dive deep into the world of film at Newport Beach Film Festival. 

 In the theaters, interstitial videos of underwater motifs helped set the scene. 

We got a little scrappy, and shot these ethereal videos in a fish tank in RPA's parking garage.

Program dividers tied each film genre to our underwater theme.

Plus, we put together an ad from RPA congratulating the filmmakers.
