Inspiration for credits - True Blood
These are the opening credits for the TV series True Blood.
The reason why they are of inspiration is that they perform two things:
1) They establish the location - the deep south, specifically the poor side.
2) They are unnerving to watch through a use of close-ups of seemingly everyday stuff, different film stock and filters.
The idea is that I could try to use imagery from UK suburbia mixed in with witchcraft symbols and similar use of effects and filters.
This making of clip shows that they wanted to create they idea of being stalked by a predator to fit in the vampire theme, as well as having a combination violence and sex in the imagery.
On the website artofthetitle.com it is described as' the slutty and the sweet swamp-goth vampiric mise-en-scène.'
