Shine’s “Outsiders” in Contention for Best Title Design at SXSW 2017

Shine is honored to be included as finalists in the Excellence in Title Design screening at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas for the main title sequence for WGN’s Outsiders.

Shine designed, edited and animated the main title sequence. In 45 seconds, the sequence visually establishes the world of the Farrels. The process of making moonshine is a visual story thread woven throughout the sequence.

A struggle for power and control set in the rugged and mysterious hills of modern-day Appalachia, Outsiders tells the story of the Farrels – a family clan who’ve been in rural Kentucky since before anyone can remember. Living off the grid and above the law on their mountaintop homestead, they’ll protect their world and defend their way of life using any means necessary.
