Burbank, CA, July 21, 2016 – Picturemill, the Content and Production division of Eclipse Advertising, recently created opening sequences for two new, high profile AMC television series.

Led by Creative Director William Lebeda, Picturemill recently created the main opening title sequences for two of AMC’s new television series, Preacher and Feed the Beast.  As longtime fans of the comic book Preacher, Lebeda and his Picturemill team were thrilled to be involved in the series open for the new AMC series.

As described by io9.com, the Picturemill-created main title sequence is “strange and unsettling, but it’s also kind of perfect at the same time."

For AMC’s new drama series Feed the Beast, Picturemill worked closely with show creator and Executive Producer Clyde Phillips to craft an opening sequence that captures the incongruity of opening a fine dining restaurant in the Bronx. For the sequence, William Lebeda directed the on-location shoot in New York City and the team digitally composited the elegant dining table within the rough and gritty environment of the Bronx. Picturemill also designed and animated the compelling “wolf and lamb” logo, which has branded the show both on and off-air. 

Steve Greene of Indiewire.com has raved that this sequence is an "insightful, artful, and straight-up cool take on NY gentrification via food culture.”

Said Clyde Philips, “Feed the Beast” Executive Producer/Showrunner, “A great collaboration… stunning work.”

Additionally, William Lebeda was recently a featured panelist on PromaxBDA 2016’s session “Art of Main Title Design.” Lebeda joined several of his industry peers, and discussed how designers are tasked with capturing the essence of a television program and set the tone of the series through a main title sequence.  

Lebeda and Picturemill designer Cecilia DeJesus presented their work for both seasons of Fox’s psychological thriller series, Wayward Pines.
