Turkish creative director Mert Kızılay imagined serial killers as shadowy giants that haunt their native land in these main titles for documentary Türkiye’deki Seri Katiller (Serial Killers in Turkey).

Each scene depicts a figure in the distance, looming over the landscape, weapon in hand. Towards the end, the camera finds the figure on a rooftop, but even then the figure’s face can’t settle, evolving into different spooky forms that include an upside-down skull.

Working with production studio Mördak Yapım on a limited budget, Kızılay and his team combined photography, live-action, 3D projection, stock elements and CGI to create the sequence, according to Stash Media.
