Title sequence - Dexter
Showtime: Dexter Main Title from DIGITALKITCHEN on Vimeo.
This is a television show about a normal man, who works for Miami Homicide... who has a secret double life... as serial killer.
One half of his life is normal, wife and kids, steady job as a blood splatter analyst. The other his "dark passenger" brutally killing people who have escaped the law.
This title sequence is incredibly clever. It portrays Dexter, getting ready in the morning, like any normal person. However the music over the top, the blood effects when he cuts himself shaving, the cut of the knife through the meat and the way the camera pans in and out on the type.
It portrays both aspects of his life, without it being straightforward.
