In 2011, Starz approached Prologue to create a title sequence for their new series Camelot. We created a custom font and logo that looked to reflect the period, and reference the infamous sword in the stone. Several times throughout the sequence, a high speed live-action shot of a sword is seen being submerged in water, suggesting the Knights of the Round Table and the Lady of the Lake. Using macro photography, we attempted to fetishize objects such as blades of grass, the threads of the battered flag of Arthur’s kingdom, along with integrating some of the sensuality and lush environments of the show itself.
