Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters | Main Title

  • Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters
    Main Title: Art Direction, Concept Development & Design
     
    Where the Brothers Grimm end their tale of Hansel & Gretel, Writer/Director Tommy Wirkola and Producer Kevin Messick begin with their own. This is not the tale you heard as a child, unless you were told of crossbow and gun wielding, bounty hunter, orphans kicking ass… and lots of fire.
     
    Using hand drawn illustrations, live-action fire elements, and computer generated effects, we created a main title sequence that tells the story of the young Hansel & Gretel and their journey to become Witch Hunters.  
     
    I had the opportunity to art direct, concept and design the main title sequence while at Picture Mill.
