How to move inside ice. Mammon credit sequence.

Mammon title screen from the final version
If you ever wondered what it would look like to move through the ice of a frozen Norwegian lake, now you have the chance. This is the credit sequence of the new season of the NRK series Mammon that is a modern drama build on politics, business, religion, money, oil and everything in between.

I worked on this concept together with Ghost and they executed it in perfect hyper-realistic macro style but all in 3D.

With this “Frozen lake” concept we tried to depict all the hidden layers of this complicated story in a poetic and symbolic way. A lot of different pieces of evidence are suspended in the frozen water.  The camera takes us deeper into the darkness of the lake and at the bottom black bubbles of oil are hanging like black pearls.
