ROMAN EMPIRE: REIGN OF BLOOD

Main Title Sequence

Netflix / Stephen David Ent

“A kingdom of gold, to one of iron and rust” (Cassius Dio). We created the Main Title Sequence for the epic Netflix docudrama ROMAN EMPIRE: REIGN OF BLOOD. The project was another successful collaboration with our friends at SDE.  Season 1 is set in the time of Commodus (177 AD), where Emperors, Senators and Gladiators were worshipped like gods. For our main title concept, it was important to capture the idea of a small crack at the top leading to the chaos and downfall of a once mighty Empire. We were able to visually create this state of demise through stone statues and busts of ancient Romans crackling and crumbling onto a cold temple floor. This slow decay is complemented by rustic projections of main characters, silently watching the drama unfold from the inside.

 

For the pride and glory of Rome, there is one thing left to do…
