Opening Title Sequence for AMERICAN GODS Season 1 on Starz
Opening Titles for the *highly anticipated (*by myself, of course) upcoming AMERICAN GODS television series from STARZ has been unleashed, along with neon-fueled sinister splash colors drenched in sin and desire, screen grabbed selectively for your gawking pleasures (in case the video gets pulled :p). I’m really liking the “totem” aesthetic :)
Season 1 for AMERICAN GODS premieres Sunday, April 30th on www.starz.com, in the USA.
PREMISE: “The series will focus on the mysterious Shadow Moon, a man serving three years in prison for assault. With only days remaining in his sentence, Shadow is given an unexpected early release after his beloved wife Laura is killed in a car accident. Flying home for the funeral, Shadow is seated next to a man calling himself Wednesday, who offers Shadow a job he seems all too confident that Shadow will accept.
Arriving home, Shadow finds that the life he thought was waiting for him is gone. With no other options, he accepts Wednesday's offer. At first, it appears that Wednesday is nothing but a con artist who runs scams for cash and needs Shadow as a collaborator and bodyguard. Shadow soon learns that Wednesday is in fact the god Odin of Norse mythology.
Wednesday is making his way across America, gathering all the old gods, who, without believers, have now incorporated themselves into American life and pretend to be ordinary people, while the New Gods – Media, Technology, and a host of others – grow ever stronger. Shadow finds himself drawn into a final confrontation between the old gods and the new.” (Wiki)
