Tendril designed and animated the end title sequence for In The Tall Grass, a Netflix produced horror movie based on the novella by Stephen King & Joe Hill and Directed by Vincenzo Natali.
The goal was to create something very earthy and primal, incorporating carnal elements like bones and flesh and other sinuous, organic materials. We explored a variety of visual and typographic treatments encompassing the underlying visual theme of endlessly writhing roots, flesh and eternal recurrence. The result was a a type of endless bone-esque garden whereby converging roots intertwine with familiar skeletal beings, and a pulsating movement emits a feeling of living death.
