Mill+ Art Director Helen Hsu: “We used oil paintings as an initial influence to create a tactile effect. The concept started with looser brush strokes but gradually got more refined to add realism and purpose. We wanted the titles to look and feel like a painting, while using 3D software to achieve the look. To avoid them looking too ‘3D’ we had to repaint the frames multiple times.”

Mill+ Creative Director Clarice Chin: “The quality of the style was very important. The titles had to evoke meaning because of the very emotional, intense stories that are being told. Fearless is a documentary series with a lot of heart in it and it was crucial that we visualize that.”
