Originally the flying fish model was intended to digitally replace the real life props in the hands of the actors (top image), however it was decided not to go ahead with this in the final draft.
They were however used in a shot in where a school of flying fish skim the surface beside the raft (bottom image).
Rune Spaans did the camera tracking and final rendering, Blink was responsible for the model, texture and animation.
