main title sequence for CBS

Shine created the main title for CBS’ new show, NCIS: New Orleans. The main title creates a face paced-connection to place by drawing upon the lights, people, floats, musicians, glare, danger and the debauchery of New Orleans.

Shine shot at 16 locations over three days, in and around the French Quarter to capture the spirit and culture of New Orleans.

Led by Special Agent in Charge Dwayne Cassius Pride, a former sheriff’s deputy and member of the fed-five, the New Orleans NCIS office handles cases from the Mississippi River to the Texas Panhandle.
Living and working out of his office, Pride heads a small team consisting of Special Agent Christopher LaSalle and his partner Special Agent Meredith Brody. LaSalle, who was recruited by Pride from the sheriff’s office, and who lives and breathes law enforcement; Brody, a recent transfer from the Great Lakes field office, has worked as a Special Agent afloat and is keen to leave her past behind as she moves to the Crescent City. The team are assisted by Dr. Loretta Wade and Sebastian Lund, forensic investigators assigned to the Jefferson Parish Medical Examiners Office, Patton Plame, an NCIS computer specialist and freelance agent.
