Title sequence for a documentary feature

Project Description

The piece is an opening title created for a documentary that recounts the investigation of a crime that shocked Brazil in 2002: the murder of one of the biggest names in the Brazilian Worker’s Party — Celso Daniel.

Based on the documentary’s most relevant points, the opening title’s art direction uses the concept of “dried blood.”
— “blood” because it was a murder and “dried” because it happened long ago.

The opening is a result of a mixed media that includes stop-motion, time-lapse, digital animation, frame by frame, shooting, and 3D.
