This project was to remake the main title sequence for the series Seven Seconds on Netflix before it came out on February 2018.
About Seven Seconds: When 15-year-old black cyclist Brenton Butler dies in a hit-and-run accident–with a white police officer behind the wheel of the vehicle–Jersey City explodes with racial tension. This crime drama explores the aftermath of the accident, which includes an attempted cover-up by the police department and a volatile trial. Assistant prosecutor KJ wants to prosecute the hit-and-run as a hate crime, in addition to a negligent homicide. The longer the case drags on without a resolution, the more tense the situation becomes. Emmy winner Regina King stars as Brenton's churchgoing mother, Latrice.
My approach is to focus on the moment when the white officer left behind the young boy who is dying in the cold. By using blood and ice as metaphors, I want to deliver a cold-blood-murder scene.
Here is some images of the making process that leaded to the final production.
