Severance Intro Titles by Extraweg #midweekmotivations
Severance on Apple TV+ is dark and entertaining but the strange and captivating intro title sequence, created by Berlin-based artist Oliver Latta, aka Extraweg, is the topic du jour. If you’re not familiar with the show, it is directed by Ben Stiller and stars Adam Scott, Christoper Walken, and Patricia Arquette. It’s about workers who get their brain severed with a device, so their workday and personal life are completely separate, as in they have no memory of their lives outside of work when they are working, and don’t know what they do for work when they’re at home.
Watch the Intro titles, below.
On Extraweg’s Behance page, you can see several stills from the sequence and some small breakdowns of the 3D assets without skins.
