Mayans MC Season 2 Promo by FX Design

In 2018, FX Networks intro’d their Mayans MC drama series with a testosterone-fueled CG promo we featured in Stash 130. For season 2, the crew at FX Design extends the signature chrome aesthetic and ups the danger with a lethal pair of serpents.

Steve Viola, director and SVP, Motion & Digital Design at FX Networks: “The key motivation for “Serpent,” was to infuse more character-driven narrative into the visuals, while further enveloping the viewer in our world of motorcycle components.

“The journey begins as we travel through infinitely-claustrophobic tunnels (referential of the drug-running tunnels across the southern border) to come upon two icons of the Mayans MC – the American side, symbolized by a massive Eagle made of motorcycle components and weapons; and the Mexican side, represented by the statue of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a religious icon of the Mayans MC’s Hispanic heritage featured prominently within the club.

“As we establish the world of the club, we descend into the depths to find the heart of the machine being strangled in the struggle between two venomous snakes – representing our two prominent brothers, Angel & EZ.”
