Title sequence for BBC TWO’s ‘The Last Kingdom’ a viking drama based on Bernard Cornwell’s novel series – The Saxon Stories.
The sequence conveys the threat to the Saxon’s from the invading vikings, showing a map of the english counties of the time burning up leaving only Wessex remaining.
How it was made:
Hand-drawn images were scanned and then projection mapped on to 3D objects in Cinema 4D. These images were drawn several times and looped to give a more traditional animation style. Finally everything was composited into After Effects.
