Direction Illustration and Animation
The title sequence uses pen and ink-style illustration to capture Morris’ expeditions to exotic locations and consuming mind-altering drugs. Inspired by 60s psychedelic comics — and combining cel, 2D, and 3D animation — the title sequence creates a journey from a clandestine facility, to the jungles of Madagascar, through mushroom fields to Hamilton’s own lab. It captures the many facets of drug use and production in a disorientingly seamless narrative.
Winner of the Silver Clio Award for Main Title.
