The TV show ‘American Gods’ has one of the most gorgeous opening sequences I’ve ever seen. Within the first couple of seconds I’m already fascinated and a little scared. The opening sequence has so much to show, it has so much symbolism and hidden meaning. The camera shots are more or less the same for the whole clip, but that’s what makes it so perfect. A slow close up that moves up and down, gently. Anything more and it wouldn’t work. The lighting and imagery is more than enough, the lighting is dim yet colourful. This is because of the use of small LED lights hidden between the statues. The music adds to the infinitely mysterious vibe.
