Blue Spill designed the title sting and in film graphics for Netflix 8 part series, Captive, produced by two-time Oscar-winning producer Simon Chinn (Man on Wire, Searching for Sugar Man) and acclaimed executive producer Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity). The series examines the most challenging hostage situations of our times, from the highest-profile cases to those kept hidden from the public.

We worked with the team to conceptualise the series aesthetic, design the title and in film graphical assets. We also then worked with individual directors to provide additional sequences as required by particular episodes.

The Captive title sting was designed to provide an explosive visual texture to the series. Soaked in deep red, our images flash frame the viewer intensively toward the title frame. The text and imagery appear in a state of decay, which translates into in episode graphical moments.
