True Detective Titles

Los Angeles production design studio Elastic won an Emmy for True Detective’s first-season title sequence. It’s eerie, depressing and beautiful at the same time.

Travel to the underbelly of America. Louisiana. The Gulf Coast. Purgatory, USA. A sopping, poisoned wasteland where industry and old time religion meet somewhere in the sugarcane. This is a place haunted by people — good and bad and everything in between — fractured souls who cling to the edges of society and themselves, walking contradictions struggling to get by and simply be.
