Chris Brancato / ABC
2D MOTION GRAPHICS | MAIN TITLE
For Of Kings and Prophets, we collaborated with show creator Chris Brancato to design a title sequence for the epic David & Goliath-era biblical series on ABC. Together, we developed a concept to articulate two themes: first, the uniting of the 12 tribes of Israel, a fledgling nation surrounded by enemies under King Saul’s rule; second, [omit: being] the human stories of greed, love, ambition, betrayal, faith, loss and the temptations of sin. We shot live-action scenarios depicting the 10 Commandments and intercut these vignettes with a volcanic-black topographical map fragmented into 12 parts. The land masses move toward each other, surrounded on all sides by the threat of a prevailing tide of molten gold.
