Hamilton Title Sequence

A speculative title sequence for an Alexander Hamilton biographical film based on the novel by Ron Chernow, in which I spent way too much time researching and choosing a hypothetical cast/crew.

 

Independent creation.

Dug through hundreds of documents available on the Library of Congress's online database to collect 18th century maps of the colonies and New York City street maps to serve as the visual basis for the aesthetic.

Combined these with watercolor scans to add color and texture, and created ink splashes to use as transitions.
