The creators of The Divide approached us with an interesting challenge for a title sequence… How do we communicate the idea of a post-racial America in an untraditional way?
The series, which was set in Philadelphia, dove heavily into the gray areas of our justice system, where there is no clear picture who is good and who is evil, whether they are prison inmates or respected politicians.
A wonderful city rooted deeply in our country’s history, Philadelphia inspired us immediately. The split between classes is still very evident there, and we attempted to capture that division in our titles. By shooting into broken mirrors, we created interesting abstractions and reflections and constructed scenes with an ever-present complexity and fractured nature.
