Lisey's Story

Main Title for Apple TV+
Directors Karin Fong and Osbert Parker teamed up to orchestrate a duet of marionettes, creating a hauntingly tender main title sequence for a series adapted from the Stephen King novel.

what we did

At the suggestion of series director Pablo Larraín, we dove into the world of puppetry to conceptualize a story that would convey the inner life of Lisey, played by Julianne Moore. Finding metaphor in the strings, we designed the two main characters as marionettes, combining classical craft and modern technology. By working with master puppeteers, we developed a live-action performance that we then shot, edited and enhanced with vfx to underscore the emotions and transformations that unfold.
