A Wilderness of Error

The five-part FX documentary series A Wilderness of Error plays like a meta retelling of multiple accounts of the same story through multiple lenses. The initial account of a gruesome crime is questioned. That questioning is questioned. And, yes, that questioning is itself questioned. Phew.

Tasked with developing a creative take for an episodic package, we focused on this repeated digestion of the story and errors entailed within. We took a literal approach and exploited actual ‘errors’ in a technique wherein each frame is informed by the preceding image. Visual errors get amplified, much like the investigators, writers, and filmmakers have amplified over the years.
