“Outsiders” main title sequence for Sony Television and WGNShine designed, edited and animated the main title sequence for Outsiders. In 45 seconds, the sequence visually establishes the world of the Farrels. The process of making moonshine is a visual story thread woven throughout the sequence.
A struggle for power and control set in the rugged and mysterious hills of modern-day Appalachia, Outsiders tells the story of the Farrels – a family clan who’ve been in rural Kentucky since before anyone can remember. Living off the grid and above the law on their mountaintop homestead, they’ll protect their world and defend their way of life using any means necessary.
The process of making moonshine was the visual story woven throughout the sequence.
Still photography of the locations were intended to visually establish the world of the Farrels.
