Jigsaw Films "We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks"
BRIEF Feature-film main titles and graphics package for documentary release; “We Steal Secrets: The Story of WIKILEAKS" - Directed by Alex Gibney. SOLUTION Design development focused on creating a foreboding, tech-driven aesthetic in keeping with the film’s sinister subject matter; involving international cyber-espionage, leaked military secrets, and the “cult-of-personality”. To visualise the spread of information in the digital age, an inter-connected structure of pixels serves as a backdrop; framing imagery that reveals over time, and from certain angles of view, to then shift and transform into a new set of content. A 3D construct of our main protagonist’s skull and facial-features forms throughout the sequence, highlighting the “cult-of-personality” concept; with the duplicity in the final reveal representing the two sides of the film’s unfolding drama.
