30 Days of Night, for which these titles were created, was produced by Sam Raimi, directed by David Slade and based on the acclaimed Graphic Novel.
Drifting through the wreck of Barrow, we pan across burned photos and eerie shattered artifacts which slowly reveal the untold horrors the families faced. Shard-like fragments of type ‘unite’ together to form the credits.
The title sequences, were designed and directed by Nic Benns, who created and composited photographs before shooting them on miniature ‘film sets’. These were composited together with plates of organic matter to create the unsettling (and at times disturbing) sequence.
