Disaster
averted?

When Unit 2 at Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Facility malfunctioned on March 28, 1979, the collective result was a tangled web of distrust and disaster that forever influenced the development of atomic energy in the United States and abroad. 

The story shared in Netflix’s top 10 documentary showcases how a narrowly diverted disaster unfolds and continues to this day to affect the inhabitants of the local community. Working in conjunction with Moxie Pictures, Spillt developed the branding and dozens of in-show content recreations to help tell the story of the United States' foremost nuclear accident.

Development

Over the course of several months we developed a comprehensive show package for the 4-part miniseries, including: title treatments, document recreations, photo treatments, and map graphics.

Many of the supporting materials were too aged to present at a 4K resolution so we developed a process to restore, treat, and animate several headline & documents in a 3D space to bring depth and realism to otherwise degraded materials.
