Title sequence for a fictional six-part documentary series, based on The Future by Al Gore. Gore describes six critical ‘drivers’, which theme each episode.
A post-modern, viral autotune style is used, making an ironic statement about the gravitas of the subject.
Found footage is used from over 30 sources, dating from 1937 to 2017, supplemented with original content. Historic imagery suggests the role that the concept of the future has played in the past, synchronised with a remixed Al Gore autotune soundtrack.
As the main sequence is used across all episodes of the documentary, these breakers/bumpers transition back into the content between commercial breaks, promoting the series. Imagery used reflects on the theme of each episode.
Expanding on the post modern, internet specific identity of the sequence, GIFs are a nod to the culture associated with autotune video, characteristically brash, humorous and informal.
