The Bush Years - Family Duty Power

Category: Titles/Openers - TV



Following the sequences I made for 'Race For the White House' and 'The Kennedys'. I was approached by Raw TV to create a title sequence for the 2019 CNN docu-series 'The Bush Years: Family. Duty. Power'.

Once in a while a project comes along that I like to tackle by myself. This meant I was responsible for every aspect of the piece from pitch to concept and design to 3D modelling and texturing to animation, editing and finishing.

The sequence draws on a wealth of beautiful archive material. Since the bulk of this was still photography, one of the major tasks of the sequence was to attempt - sensitively - to bring authentic movement into this material.
