Ryan Murphy / FX
Ryan Murphy approached Prologue to create the main title sequence for American Horror Story before principal photography began. Using only the first few episodes’ scripts as a basis, Prologue created this creepy opening that epitomizes the themes of the first season. Prologue shot all the live action, chose the music track, and created the Charles Mackintosh font that has become synonymous with the American Horror Story brand. Prologue would go on to collaborate with Ryan Murphy on American Horror Story’s opening titles an additional five more times. Fans and critics alike have called the opening titles an iconic part of the show.
