Title sequence for the Netflix Original Series "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events."
Create a title sequence and deliverables package for a television series.
Though "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events" became a movie, three peers and I chose to create a title and deliverables for Netflix's new release of the story as a television series. We wanted our titles to reflect the darker side of the comedy in the books. Our goal was to combine high-contrast lighting, muted, deep color tones, and obscure objects to build the mood.

Through three-day series of shoots, we filmed sets built of items from the books or other items that gave an antique feel. After building the sets, we used hot lights on c-stands for movement as well as a camera on a super boom to allow for smooth movement. Some shots were with a standard lens while others were with a macro to give a shifting shallow focus and add mystery to show parts of the whole.
