In typical James Gunn fashion, this main title breaks the mold. It comes to life over a hilariously choreographed dance sequence featuring the cast.
Hair metal not only influences the music, it also impacted the visual styling of the show. So, it made sense for us explore typography that relates to that genre. We had to balance that aesthetic with the strong personality of the sequence’s production design, which had prominent accents of pink and blue neon throughout.
While the treatment may be bold, it is balanced in a way that it complements the composition and the set design of each shot. We integrated the titles into the live action in a way which allowed us to have balanced compositions while still making sure the cast is unobstructed.
Through the season, the story evolves in tone and we become more intimately familiar with the characters. As a result, the way this title sequence is interpreted changes as well — it plays fun light and happy in some episodes and then very sad in others.
