FX once again asked us to pitch an idea for the graphics packages of the upcoming American Horror Story 1984. The 80’s slasher-themed direction of this new season provided us with a starting point to create a variety of styleframes. First of all, we tried to capture the atmosphere and colours of slasher films, while still keeping the style modern. By looking through a collection of iconic 80s classics, we noticed recurrent visual elements, such as the use of dark silhouettes, shadows, and dramatic, directional lighting. We made use of reflective surfaces to reveal elements that would otherwise be hidden. One could think of these as a mirror or a window from which the protagonist glimpses his/her foe, referencing the tension and chase typical of the 80s horror genre. By using blurriness, distortion, refraction and camera close-ups, we were able to achieve a look and feel that paid hommage to these movies while retaining a graphic style that is applicable to a variety of potential deliverables.
