FX – The Bridge

To promote the first season of The Bridge on FX, we were provided an illustration of a bisected body and tasked with producing a :15 sec ID/tone piece around this simple image. We did this using sequential photography, painted illustrations, and other live elements selected for their visual connection to the street exteriors of Ciudad Juárez. A matte painted look was sought and combined with in-camera diffusion while a shifting multi-plane arrangement separates and rejoins related elements.

The FX Networks series The Bridge follows two police detectives (one from Mexico, and one from the U.S.) in a joint effort to investigate a serial killer after a woman’s bisected body is found spanning the center of the bridge that links the United States and Mexico between El Paso, Texas and Ciudad Juárez.
