Fathoms is a film by Joe Russ, Inspired by the loss of his father to cancer at the age of 17, and informed by his love for all things scifi, mystery, and horror.

Successfully funded on Kickstarter, Fathoms has been a labor of love for Joe. Made during nights and weekends, he created the story, animated, and composited the film over the course of six years. The locations are inspired by his commute from Park Slope, Brooklyn into Manhattan.
