The Primetime Emmy nominated title sequence for the HBO/Sky One action series Strikeback.
The titles for Strikeback took 10 months to create whilst we explored a vast array of design design directions and editorial decisions. I was the lead animator on these titles and was given pretty much free reign to create the most entertaining and action packed sequence for this non stop show.
Due the show being a co-production between HBO in America and Sky One in the UK we ended up having to produce two different sequences for each market. Above is the HBO version which has a more comic book graphic styling to it and below is the Sky One version which is closer to our original pitch boards with a more photographic slant to the design.
Directed and Designed by Nic Benns
Producer Tom Bromwich
