If you have not started watching True Detective on HBO, I recommend you start RIGHT NOW! I cannot get enough of this show. The story alone is crazy, but I also love the photography and the amazing title sequence. The layering of images over semi silhouetted faces. There’s just something about this intro that got me hooked immediately.
It also brought me back to college around the time when I was figuring out what type of graphic designer to become. A teacher in my motion graphics class urged me to go into the title sequence industry. Of course I did not listen to him, because I was already interested in print design. Apart of me always wondered what if I went in that direction. I always catch myself really paying attention to title sequence, getting being sucked in immediately and wondering what if?
Check out the sequence here, and start watching now!
