True Detective season two focuses on people trapped inside their own lives and the choices they’ve made; Elastic designed the television show’s titles with this theme in mind. The production company uses digital production techniques, like 3-D photo-projection mapping, but embraces the grit of hand-painted aesthetics, choosing textures that look tactile and vintage. The titles feature vivid photographs of arid Southern California landscapes from David Maisel that are overlaid with double exposure-style images of the TV show’s cast. The textures and vivid colors provide enough depth and intrigue for the audience to keep returning to True Detective.
