Making history come alive on Netflix

We crafted three unique 20-second Title Sequences for Netflix's WAR SAILOR limited series. The sequences embody the Norwegian trade fleets' WWII role. Inspired by a rift in the main characters' lives, we used the horizon as a divider, symbolising uncertainty. The visuals feature water, rubble, and shiplines, juxtaposing contrasts like over/under, home/away, and life/death. These convey the essence of the series, capturing Gunnar Vikene's central horizon-line concept and the characters' emotional journey.
