The Swamp
Category Description

A title sequence within a documentary film.

Project Description

We created “The Swamp” for HBO with an eerie and dystopian CG title sequence for the documentary. We wanted to capture how Congress leads to gridlock by bipartisanship and how it damages citizens in a surreal way. We started visualizing with the Lincoln statue slowly drowning to the water. This concept opened up the idea of drowning historical and political figures. We used 3d software – Cinema4d to achieve highly realistic renders of this surreal world.
