Pitch for the opening title sequence for the Netflix / Marvel supergroup series The Defenders. In the concept, a bleak colorless Hell’s Kitchen is flooded with colors which represent each of the main protagonists: Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist. The spectrum of color emanating from specific light sources help to define the characters’ presence in this specific patch of Manhattan, and the colors intertwine as does their personas and storylines in the show. With the pitch I wanted to present a base colorless environment created almost entirely in a 3D world that receives its definition and color from light and atmosphere.
