The Mill created the opening titles to the History Channel’s epic new drama series ‘Vikings’. From concept art, through to production, edit, compositing and final grade, the titles immerse viewers into the world of the mighty Norsemen.
They follow the separation of a Viking from the living. He slips into darkness amongst ornaments of his life; weaponry, gold and bone. His fading memory flickers throughout before he is consumed by one of the ‘Sisters’, a Norse goddess. He is left a shell below the waves before we learn he is not alone, but one of many sinking below the creeping surge of Viking raiders above. As the titles draw to a close the fiery massive raid assaults a darkened coast line.
