Boris TV Goes to The Emmys

With the Primetime Emmys right around the corner (8/25), Boris TV is saluting the Outstanding Main Title Design winner HBO’s True Detective. Although we’d love to see fellow motion graphics artists and editors get some much-deserved attention during the primetime broadcast (you listening, Emmys?), the Creative Arts Emmys were held earlier this week.

In this episode of Boris TV, Kevin Samar (a recent addition to our QA team and dare we say upcoming Boris TV regular) teaches you how to create one piece from True Detective‘s gritty opener using BCC 9 in Adobe After Effects.

Here’s the original title sequence -

Congrats to the other Outstanding Main Title Design nominees! Keep up the awesome work!

Black Sails, Starz

Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Fox

Masters of Sex , Showtime

Silicon Valley, HBO

What do you think? Does True Detective‘s title design reign supreme?
