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. The second 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 landmasses move toward each other surrounded on all sides by the threat of a prevailing tide of molten gold.
