TwinArt Creates Title Sequence for New WB TV Series ?TwinsCombines live action and still photo animation in music video-style montage (September 23, 2005)
TwinArt, one of the countrys top design studios which mixes art, fashion, graphics, live-action sequences and multi-media in the promotion of television networks and programs, has produced the opening main title sequence for the new WB TV Network series ?Twins. The Kahn Sisters made todays announcement.
The new WB TV Network series ?Twins, which is being executive produced by David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, debuted on that channel on September 16, and airs at 8:30 PM on Fridays. Starring Melanie Griffith, Sara Gilbert, Mark Linn-Baker, and newcomer Molly Stanton, the series involves identical twin sisters, one smart, one not, who inherit their parents lingerie business.
For the ?Twins main title sequence, TwinArt designed the opening as a combination live action and still photo animation music video-style montage. The actors were celebrating the birthday of the twins, one of the only things these opposite sisters have in common. The color palette is black and white, which also demonstrates the conflicting personalities of these twin sisters.
Creative Director Ellen Kahn, ?Of course, it make perfect sense that my twin sister and I would be selected to design and direct the new main title for ?Twins. Having been a twin my whole life, I can certainly relate to the characters featured on this show. This new main title was a lot of fun for us, and we have high hopes for the long-term success of this new series.
Real life identical twins Ellen Kahn and Lynda Kahn co-founded the bi-coastal production and design company TWINART in 1986 as a means of working collaboratively. Since that time, the women have worked with virtually every major U.S. television network and cable channel, including design and production contributions to such hit TV series as ?Arrested Development, ?Dharma & Greg, ?Two Guys & A Girl, and ?American Top 40 with Ryan Seacrest, such music & variety shows as ?Fashion Rocks and those featuring Tim McGraw, Cher, Janet Jackson, and Tsunami Aid, awards shows including the ?Radio Music Awards (since 1999,) and TV commercials for such major brands as Absolut Vodka, Martini and Rossi, Nabisco, Hersheys, Nintendo, and Coca-Cola.
