Diving into
Lovecraftian Horror

Collaborating with Gehenna Gaming presented an exciting opportunity to shape the aesthetic identity of their new Call of Cthulhu show, delving into the rich tapestry of Lovecraftian literature and Cosmic Horror. The challenge was clear: to immerse the audience in an otherworldly atmosphere, evoking the spine-tingling essence of the genre before the first scene even unfolded.

With meticulous attention to detail, I crafted visuals representing key narrative elements with a soundtrack that would transport viewers into the depths of cosmic dread, ensuring that every frame resonated with the unsettling allure of Lovecraft's universe.

In addition to shaping the show's aesthetic, I collaborated closely with Gehenna Gaming to develop an engaging outro reel. This served to not only captivate the audience's attention as the episode drew to a close but also to honour the talented crew whose dedication brought the production to life. By seamlessly blending captivating visuals with thoughtful credits, we crafted an outro that left a lasting impression and fostered a sense of community among viewers. The choice of an unexpected soundtrack as the credits rolled only added to the sense of unease for the audience, which helped capitalise on many of the comments I'd uncovered in my initial research into other shows.
