Cursed Films Title Sequence (2022)

In late 2021 I was commissioned by director Jay Cheel and producer Brian Robertson to create the title sequence for the second season of Cursed Films,
a five part documentary series which explores the myths and legends behind some of Hollywood's notoriously cursed horror film productions.

Cursed Film is produced by Shudder, a streaming service owned by AMC Networks.

Title Design Credits:
Concept, 3D Design, animation, compositing - Juan Segura
Cursed Films II logo - Jay Cheel
Music - Sub / I Signori Della Galassia, Francesco Delfino

Tools used in the production:
- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe After Effects
- Cinema4D
- Otoy Octane Render

Fully produced in 3D, the title sequence features volumetric lights and translucent surfaces in a dense atmosphere revealed by film projections.

Concept and Visual exploration

The concept behind the title sequence originates from the symbolic image of a snake creeping inside a skull. By replacing the reptile with a celluloid this iconic representation of a curse interweaves with the world of cinema´s production.
