Graphis New Talent Annual 2022 Silver Award Winner - Film Title/Video
WHAT IS IT?
A title sequence for Channel 4's It's a Sin. The miniseries focuses on 5 friends from the UK as they navigate the HIV/AIDS crisis in the 80s.
I first thought of doing a more well known movie or show, but I decided to pivot to highlight a show that not many have seen but had a very important story to tell. With little to no information on how HIV/AIDS was spread, people feared and began to blame the gay community as they were hit the hardest. I wanted to utilize HIV/AIDS posters from the 1980s and 90s to create a shocking and unsettling title sequence that puts queer history at the forfront while capturing the spirit of the show and its characters. The posters I chose to use were carefully selected to reveal subtle nuances to a characters’ personality or storyline.
