Blue Spill were very excited to collaborate and work with Director John Dower and Lightbox on the three-part Netflix series “Sophie: A Murder in West Cork”, which focuses on the murder investigation of Sophie Toscan taking place in Schull, West Cork, Ireland in the year of 1996.
We worked closely with the London based team, developing a tactile/analogue aesthetic as we wanted the graphics to sit seamlessly in the era that the investigation took place in. Our main role and focus for the project was to create a set of maps which would be referenced continually throughout the series with key locations linked to the investigation of Sophie’s murder, as well as timeline cards detailing different segments of the investigation to help guide the narrative.
Blue Spill created over 25 motion sequences for Netflix’s Sophie: A Murder in West Cork using an ACES Adobe After Effects and Flame workflow.
