Starring Damián Alcázar (Narcos), Tamara Vallarta, and Rolf Petersen, the series takes a brutal look at the dangers journalists in Mexico face every day.

Concepts for the main titles explores a progression of tones representing the complex world of reporting in a city like Tijuana. Commencing with a hopeful tone, with the sun rising over Tijuana – a metaphor for the young idealistic pursuit of a journalist trying to uncover truths hidden in the shadows. As the light progresses, a world of moral ambiguity is revealed – the deeper the journalists dig, the more the world is revealed as a complex web of shadows, where the division between good and evil is not as simple as black and white.

In collaboration with Kapwa, Cumulus VFX created the opening title sequence for Tijuana; a story about a prominent politician who is murdered, and the intrepid journalists of Frente Tijuana who risk their lives to uncover the truth.

"Cumulus VFX played a critical role in delivering the Tijuana title sequence for Netflix. Their ability to reliably produce fantastic VFX work within high-pressure situations, their professionalism and eclectic mix of talent, made them easy partners to work with, whether we were in Sydney, or California. I love the people there and can't wait for the next project we do together."
