Ryan Murphy / FOX
Prologue shot a talent based live-action opening title sequence for Scream Queens featuring Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, Abigail Breslin and Skyler Samuels. Drawing inspiration from dozens of classic horror film murders, the opening establishes a tone that blends violence and humor. The sequence features the youthful cast being confronted by the knife-wielding devil, and the occasional wink from the cast as if they are posing and acknowledging the audience, ala Ferris Bueller. The breaking of the fourth wall pays homage to the history of situation comedy opening credits sequences, reminding us that this is a black comedy. Prologue also created the branding for Scream Queens marketing in conjunction with the main title design.
