This post is for the benefit of those who have might have missed out on HBO’s exceptional True Detective series, in particular the mesmerizing opening sequence utilizing the photography visual concept of multiple exposures, done to spectacular effect. Check it out below –
The spellbinding opening sequence is only the icing on the cake – the series is a class act in itself and is exemplary in all the different disciplines of film-making. I also relish the idea of the anthology format that the series is employing, with each season featuring a different cast of characters and story.
True Detective is directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, whose recent film adaptation of Jane Eyre I really liked. I hope the upcoming blu-ray release comes with juicy morsels on the cinematography of the series.20
