The “Television Title Sequence” assignment challenged students to incorporate video, sound, and text to reimagine a 60-second title sequence for existing TV programming. Original video footage by the student was required. Music was sourced from Creative Commons licensed sources. Introductory skills included video and sound editing, beginning After Effects knowledge, rendering video, and storyboarding.
The purpose of this title sequence is to transport the viewer into the unknown by making ordinary footage appear extraordinary. The process work in achieving this mysterious tone involved adjusting the video footage to a slightly desaturated sepia tone with overlaid grungy textures. The final shot incorporates antlers, a major plot element within the show.
The reimagining of the title sequence was received very well in terms of execution and achieving the intended mysterious tone of the show.
