Producer John Morena turned forensics into art for the main title sequence for Netflix’s latest true-crime docuseries, Evil Genius: The True Story of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist, executive produced by the Duplass Brothers, Mark and Jay.

The show tells the tragic story of pizza delivery man who had a homemade bomb strapped around his neck before being forced to rob a bank.

According to Morena on Vimeo, “the bomb was made using hardware store and household items by a hoarder named Bill Rothstein. The concept behind the graphics was to create a forensic vibe using analog equipment as if Rothstein had made the graphics for the show himself.”

We think Morena got his point across.

Evil Genius dropped on Netflix on May 11.
