I’m fighting off a little cold, so I am getting some serious couch time and having a Mad Men-a-thon. During nearly every episode I laugh, am disgusted, terrified, intrigued and excited. In my dreams for one day I get to look like Joan, but with Roger’s one-liners and Peggy’s job.
While waiting for that to happen, I found this really interesting interview with the creators of the shows iconic opening sequence. Instead of being just a typical interview, they show the story boards and concept ideas really giving us a glimpse into the creative process. It took 4 months and an entire team of people to build a sequence that is 38 seconds long. Not surprisingly, the same design group did the amazingly fabulous opening sequence to Boardwalk Empire.
