The Night of the Zombie King titles were shot entirely on my coffee table in my living room, I recreated one of the tabletop gaming scenes from the episodes. Strategically placing figurines with the translucent dice, I wanted the shadows to dance across the elements to create movement where usually there isn’t any. I ended up shooting about 45 minutes of footage and only using about 15 seconds.
I set up the camera on a small tripod and grabbed an LED flashlight to get that high contrast needed. The light source also could pierce the dice and push their shadows pretty far without losing too much contrast.
The raw footage was then re-colored in Magic Bullet Mojo and edited in Premiere and, finally, the titles were added in After Effects.
All in all I think they worked very well for the content of the series and I’m very proud to have them showcased on such a wonderful show.
