Being the major space nerd that I am, it was an absolute dream come true to creative direct the opening titles for Syfy’s show, The Expanse (which now streams on Amazon). Based on a series of books by James S. A. Corey, The Expanse is set in a near future where humans inhabit all corners of the Solar System. As we journey through the outer reaches of our home in the universe, our titles are a glimpse into humankind’s impact on Earth and beyond.

Ten second titles featuring the Solar System. I designed and animated the whole sequence.

Select styleframes from during production. You'll see some frames from our original direction, which followed the journey of one spaceship from Earth to Saturn, the furthest place humans have inhabited in The Expanse.

To be given the opportunity to design the ending show logotype was a tick off the bucket list.

Animatic progress edit which shows the titles at different stages of production – from the very first edit with pitch frames, to the final product.
