Deceit, power and conspiracy drive the series so we created an introduction that challenges perceptions and obscures reality, slowly revealing the dark secrets that are hidden deep within. Who’s in control?
Created with a combination of 3D and stock footage, the title sequence is centred around the key theme of 'control', using smoke as an entity that can manipulate what the viewer sees — turning it into a malevolent force.
Working alongside the team at FOX, we coordinated a shoot with Mark Strong to capture the footage needed for key moments in the title sequence.
We extensively researched and tested different smoke animation and behaviour to ensure that it was able to act in a natural way whilst creating forms and shapes that would trick the eye of the viewer.
