A well-executed title sequence sets up the plot, characters, tone, setting, and conflict, usually without dialogue. The best title sequences are the ones you can’t bring yourself to skip. Thanks to a great song or visuals, they keep you engaged before the story begins.
If Harbor had an opening title sequence for 2023, it would be jampacked. First, the visual effects would be top-notch, thanks to our newly assembled advertising VFX team, guided by Creative Director Kyle Cody.
The tone would be celebratory as we mark Harbor’s ten-year anniversary in New York at the DL rooftop in the LES. Worldwide as well, holiday parties punctuated the end of 2022 and the beginning of the New Year.
The music would be impeccable, thanks to Studio Coordinator Natasha Nobre, who brings us great music across genres and decades.
The easter eggs would be indescribable, because I can’t give away any secrets about the exciting projects Harbor has already begun, set to be unveiled in 2023 (you’ll have to take my word for it).
The plot teasers would introduce some of our initiatives, including the Lagos Film Lab, based in Lagos, Nigeria which Harbor has partnered with thanks to our Talent Coordinator, Nina Hay.
No doubt the editing, color, and sound would be some of the best you’ve ever seen, because that’s what we do.
As the curtain opens on 2023, I like to think of this monthly as our opening title, setting the stage for an unprecedented and visionary year to come.
