In an effort to further grow my skillset through learning by doing... I have decided to take some of my favourite films and re-imagine them as potential sequel - tv series. Taking the fictional idea, that if these films are to be picked up in the ever growing style of tv drama adaptations by companies such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, i have set myself the "brief" of producing the title sequence.
I have tried to capture the mood and style of the original film along with establishing any new ideas that i think may be implemented in a potential sequel. The sequence picks up where we left off with the original film, on the sea. This then transition in contrast to the confinements of Andy's cell. Moving round the cell we see clues to the events after the film in the newspaper headlines. This all hopes to establish the tone for series whilst also reminding the audience of the events of the film and the events leading up to the new series.
Hope you like it!
