Our brief from Sky for the title sequence was to capture the opulence of the southern French location whilst also conveying the inner turmoil of Julia Stiles’ character, central to the story. Having presented various concept designs in a creative pitch process we were awarded the sequence by producers Archery Pictures and Sky Atlantic. We designed and produced the sequence, titles and logo branding using imagery directly from the show, as well as directing specially filmed footage of Julia Stiles for the sequence. Once we had created all the art directed material we enlisted Lexhag VFX to help bring the sequence to life. The aim was provide a vivid and dynamic introduction for the show whilst also implying subtle visual motifs to the storyline.

Isabella Summers (Florence and the Machine) was brought on board by Sky to produce the title music for the show.
