The TV title sequence is a branding endeavor and a legitimate art form. It is the sole, consistent, and iconic moment that carries through a show’s lifespan and beyond. It’s what you remember most. Digital Kitchen is the most Emmy-nominated firm in the category. These are little art films really, that find their own voice, all while arming audiences with each show’s unique psychology and worldview.
