Coffee & TV | Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story – Title Sequence

Coffee & TV

From the creator:

Steve Waugh and Danny Boyle co-directed the title sequence for Jimmy Savile: A British Horror Story. The documentary series about disgraced television personality Jimmy Savile was created by 72 Films and directed by Rowan Deacon for Netflix.
Rowan tasked Steve and Danny to build the sequence’s narrative around Savile’s gravestone and detailed epitaph. The gravestone and its destruction was recreated in CG so it could be used as a metaphor to depict the scale and nature of Savile's betrayal of a nation.
