Graceland Opening Titles

This is the opening title sequence for the USA Network original series, GRACELAND.

The creative objective for this opening title sequence was to showcase the five cast members, the show's creator and the name of the show, while adhering to USA's 10 second time limitation. 

Piecing together "behind-the-scenes" photographs, 16mm film footage and other promotional marketing materials, I first created style frames, which then became the final look and feel of GRACELAND'S open.  I later designed and animated the show's titles over the edit. The textured overlay in the sequence plays upon the gritty tone of the show.
