The 100 opening titles by We Are Royale | STASH MAGAZINE

Royale Opens “The 100” for CW

Royale sets the tone for CW’s hit post-nuclear drama “The 100” with an intriguing mix of live action, CG, matt paintings and motion graphics.

Jayson Whitmore, ECD/partner at Royale in LA: “We wanted to expand on the show and give viewers a reason to pay close attention to the titles. The narrative information in each shot gives die-hard fans and casual viewers a sense of a much larger world yet to be fully explored.

“Everything from the locations to the telemetric data being displayed is pulled straight from the show’s cannon. Taking this even further, the first and last shot of the sequence will change for each and every episode.”
