Jeremy Cartwright and I collaborated to create an opening sequence for CW's Originals. The themes of power and family were explored while giving a hint of the personalities of the characters. We chose to juxtapose photographic imagery, grunge elements and type to portray the show's historical and modern narratives. We felt that the audio song, " This Land Is Your Land. " by Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings which was used at the beginning of the first episode, was fitting to use for this title sequence.
