Sons of Tucson
2010 • Fox
Created by: Greg Bratman & Tommy Dewey
To tell the back story of how three young brothers bribe a schemer to pretend to be their father, we mixed footage from the show with photos that we took of Labine and created a stop-motion sequence.
This is probably one of our favorite sequences that we’ve done because it needed to tell the backstory in a fun and creative way, all in less than 20 seconds. We were fortunate to work with Tyler Labine for a quick photo shoot and also to be given access to footage from the show. We found shots of the young boys that aligned with the photo shoot to create specific moments for the title sequence.
This sequence used a modified version of the technique we developed for Juno. This time we cut out the characters from cardboard sheets (a reference to moving boxes for the show).
