The mouths and eyes in the ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK main title sequence actually belong to women who were former inmates, not the actresses themselves

52 women shot in 8 hours at Homeboy Industries - Los Angeles. 9 women in NYC. In Los Angeles, TC helped 52 women visualize good memories as well as 'things to forget.' This main title sequence was for Jenji Kohan's Netflix series "Orange is the New Black."
On our shoot, the TCG team used hand gestures and short-hand talk that sounded like they were talking in Yoda speak – it was fun to watch the storyboards come to life on the screen

What TCG does is hard to put into words. They are chasing ways to represent human emotions. When you see a sequence of theirs, it can make your skin crawl, punch you in the gut – and sometimes make you want to watch it again.
