Elastic Evokes California Noir for ‘True Detective’ Season 2 Titles

Elastic once again was tapped to create the opening titles of HBO’s anthology series True Detective, this time evoking modern-day California’s sleek, sunset-drenched vibe as opposed to Louisiana’s moody blue palette from last season.

“They have completely different feels, different palettes, different textures,” creative director Patrick Clair tells Wired about the two sequences. “It’s really about trying to make it feel like you’re journeying through a photograph. You don’t want it to be as crazy and intense as watching footage, because footage is about a series of events happening, whereas this is just about the compositions themselves.”
