Mystery Train
Motion Design & Videography

Mystery Train, a 1989 film by Jim Jarmusch, is a triptych of seemingly unrelated stories set in Memphis, Tennessee. This unsolicited title sequence is designed to reflect the relaxed pace and understated attributes seen throughout the film. The use of pool balls in the title sequence mimics the film’s complex plot, interactions between characters, and vivid use of color.

I filmed, edited, color corrected, and art directed this video.
