Main titles design and show branding

Client:
Carnival Films / BBC America
Project type:
Main titles / unsolicited pitch

Placeholder soundbed:
Vangelis Dedes – Persian Warlord

This was a pre-production pitch idea sent to Carnival films and BBC America for their upcoming Anglo Viking epic in 2015. Unsolicited, we created the work to catch the attention of the producers. The storyboard cast list is pure fantasy with the exclusion of Alexander Dreymon; the only confirmed cast member at the time of delivery.

We included type suggestions, and various logo treatments. It formed part of a larger proposal, including show branding and full concept storyboard, accompanied by the animated logo reveal shown directly below.

We recently caught up with Nick Murphy (The show’s Executive Producer) who hadn’t seen our proposal; often the case with unsolicited material, but he called our work “impressive”.

“Slick and well-judged”

Nick Murphy – Executive Producer, The Last Kingdom
