What better way to start the first work week of the new year off than with some excellent new work from the multi-talented Elliot Lim for The Wire.
You can find out more about the San Fransisco based director’s process below:
I always wanted to do a project on the subject of The Wire, and I finally got started on one earlier this year. My first thought was to do an alternate title sequence, but I realized that the project could be whatever I wanted, and why reinvent the wheel?
So it became more of a personal, visual tribute, set to the show’s iconic intro music. I spread out the work over approximately 7 months, partly out of necessity (I had to do it between jobs), and partly to avoid burning out. My goal from the start was to finish it in the calendar year, and I just made it.
