“Shut Up and Dribble” Documentary Titles

Design director Hazel Baird and the Elastic crew open Showtime’s three-part doc “Shut Up and Dribble” with a layered and frenetic treatment reflecting “the changing role of athletes in our fraught cultural and political environment.”

Hazel Baird: “We knew the series was going to be a powerful inside look at the changing role of black athletes in today’s cultural and political environments so we wanted the sequence to reflect that.

“The scratchy texture that appears over the footage and animates around the athletes was made with the intention of looking like barbed wire, the written textures symbolize the years of political struggle the athletes had to endure, and the bright colors mimic their larger than life personalities.”
