The podcast, My Favorite Murder, is themed around true crime and comedy and is hosted by Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. The podcast opens with an introduction track that references their podcast network, Exactly Right, and then their theme song plays. This title sequence is based around that track.
I began with researching other title sequences and compiling them into a concept board. I took some notes about the show and what art direction I wanted to take this animation in.
I also started ideating with thumbnail sketches of different storyboards I could do for the animation.
I then took those sketches and digitalized them to show a more cohesive art style. I wrote notes next to the different direction to help visualize how the final animation might turn out.
After choosing a direction, I created a design board of the animation and an animatic test to see how it would flow.
