This title sequence was created for 'The Bad Kids,' an intense 2020 Chinese television series that revolves around a murder mystery that impacts several families in a small town. The story follows three schoolboys who accidentally capture the murder on film.

The series is full of suspense, horror, and unexpected twists that keep the audience on edge. To capture the essence of the series in the title sequence, I used a dark color palette and coarse textures, which enhance the ominous atmosphere of the story. In addition, I chose creepy and eerie background music that complements the visuals and helps create a sense of unease.
