BLACKOUT : Credits Sequence .  WATCH HERE︎

Film - 2021
Producer: Jim Steele
Director: Sam Macaroni
Design and Animation: David Silva

A man wakes in a hospital with no memory, and quickly finds himself on the run in a locked down hospital with the Cartel on his tail. He scrambles to find his true identity in the most vicious way.

How does it looks to live a live in constant danger? This question was the basis of my work for design the credits sequence of Blackout. Through the entire process I reflected about this idea, feeling those moments of anguish that I have lived in the past. Everyone has felt at risk, at the very risk of death, no matter what was the danger everyone was facing, this feeling is almost there for everyone.

Sam provided me with his main reference for the sequence which was the James Bond’s main titles. I studied that reference deeply, thinking about the true meaning of it, and seeing why it was so important for the franchise. The simplicity is the greatest achieve of all, and James Bond’s main titles have it.

“David, you did such a fantastic job. I can't thank you enough. You'll be really proud to see your name onscreen when the film comes out. I'll make sure to contact you for my next film!” - Sam Macaroni
