Main on End Title Sequence

Working with DC, Warner Bros. and director James Wan, Filmograph created a sequence that takes the viewer on a travelogue journey from Aquaman’s coastal home and lighthouse to his epic battle to become ruler of all the underwater kingdoms. From the bright, bioluminescent colors of Atlantis to the high contrast lava-like palette of the Brine Kingdom, we have the chance to see and feel the rich, vibrant textures of the world our characters inhabit. Distinctly integrated cartographic vernacular and a range of complementary, compass-based designs were incorporated into the sequence in an effort to emphasize the documented past of the kingdoms; these, combined with meticulously-crafted frozen action moments – as if suspended underwater – allowed us to craft this uniquely engaging cinematic experience.
