Bethesda, Md.-based creative agency Trick & Mortar conjured up LSD-infused motion graphics for Discovery Plus’ documentary, Dr. Delirium and the Edgewood Experiments. The 80-minute special looked at experiments that the U.S. government conducted on soldiers in the 1960s.
Besides the trippy graphics, the spot combines strong editorial with archival footage and unique sound design to create an overall vibe.
Dr. Delirium and the Edgewood Experiments premiered June 9 on Discovery Plus.
