Artjail Creates Nostalgic Animated Sequence and Titles for ‘Going Clear’

Design house Artjail created the main title sequence for Alex Gibney’s Scientology documentary Going Clear, as well as delivering an animation to visualize Scientology’s creation story.

“Using stock footage, CG and 2D elements, Artjail created the animations for the film’s ‘Myth of Creation’ sequence, which is narrated by L. Ron Hubbard himself,” executive producer Arthur Portnoy explains “The animated footage is layered, creating a surreal and bizarre set of images that serve as a visual interpretation of Hubbard’s strange, sci-fi explanation for how the world was created. Impressionistic imagery was used throughout different parts of the film to illustrate some of the strange rituals and circumstances in which featured church members found themselves.”

Artjail used Adobe After Effects, Autodesk Maya and Flame to create their shots’ nostalgic look.
