A title sequence designed for Nightcrawler; a movie by Jake Gyllenhaal about how an amateur freelance news reporter turned into a manipulative sociopath. The main design approach is to use all night scenes throughout to maximize the sense of eeriness. Red lights played an important role as a subtle symbol for the protagonist. I also designed a new word mark for this movie, which resembles a broken neon sign glowing at night.
