Castle Rock Main Title 




Art Director / Animator
Enter the world of Castle Rock through the pages of Stephen King's books. Inspired by the textures of a well-loved paperback; from the creased dog eared cover to the broken spine, to notes in the margins, we embraced the medium from which Stephen King comes. 

Filled with references and Easter eggs, it raises as many questions as it answers about what is to come in Castle Rock.
We pursued many different concepts before arriving on the final direction. Throughout the process, we'd been primarily looking at how to show Castle Rock as a place, and keeping the Stephen King connections subtle. But with the direction we ended up going with, the entire concept is about those connections, and the origin of the town being from within his books.
