"Short Treks" main titles pitch, 2018.
The series presents a varied collection of short stories, each taking place in the Star Trek universe. The client sought a neat and concise sequence to pin the diverse narratives together whilst establishing themes of home planet, humanity and the relationship between.
I liked the idea of a sequence that ends where it begins. We would open and close with a simple graphic ring, both as a subtle suggestion of an infinitie boundless universe but also as the form that unites the various imagery of the piece (planet, iris, crater, etc.). Perpetual motion expressed by an ever-retreating camera would allow us to transition from human to cosmic scales, and provide a visceral sense of endless exploration. I felt that the seamless sequence might even play through more than once with an accelerating pace.
