Vikings Main Titles

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Film Advertising Crafts / TV & Cinema Title Sequences / 2014

The opening titles of History’s drama series Vikings was inspired by a folktale found in The Sagas of the Nine Sisters; goddesses of the waves that would pluck Vikings from their ships, pulling them to a dark, watery grave. Director, Rama Allen seeked out the haunting, ancient and visceral part in all of us and delved into the space between life and death, charting one warrior’s lonely crossing of that gap. By identifying the show's core emotions and beliefs, the creative team captured the scope of the Viking era and the complexity and mystery of the Vikings' pagan culture and myth.
