DNA of a Murder Opening Titles

Overview

Our Friends of Aggressive asked us to help them to create the opening titles for the latest true crime series from Oxigen TV: «The DNA of Murder». The director duo wanted to mix again cinematography and projection mapping, in order to use the light to create surreal spaces and to resemble a Film-Noir mood in a 30-second piece. The main objective was to build the entire sequence around experimental in-camera visual effects.

Process

We started working together to gather references and mood images into a Pitch. We wanted to solve different scenes using projection techniques to create a mood and a coherent sequence to explain in the quest of Paul Holes solving cold cases crimes.
After getting awarded, we started to work in a really tight deadline to create all the visual content that would be used on set while recording. We created preview files for each shot to try to recreate the conditions of the set.
With a total of 8 key scenes, we produced specific animations to create a detective context to be used as content and lighting for the character on set.
It was a really interesting process to receive and re-compose a lot of visual material from old cold cases to create different designs.
