Broadcast Newsroom berichtet das bei der Emmy Verleihung die Serie Dexter, den Hauptpreis für das „Main Title Design“ gewonnen hat. Das Studio Digital Kitchen hat diesen gestaltet und erhält zum dritten Mal eine entsprechende Auszeichnung für Motion-Design:
DMN Newswire–2007-9-17–Digital Kitchen (DK) won this year’s Emmy Award for Outstanding Main Title Design for the Showtime Series „Dexter“. DK received the honor Saturday at the 59th Creative Arts Emmy Awards. DK conceived, directed and edited the title sequence, collaborating with the show producers throughout. The live action footage was directed by DK on the Dexter set in Los Angeles with additional shooting done in the DK Chicago insert stage. The sequence was then edited and completed in DK’s Chicago office.
The main title sequence for the Showtime series „Dexter“ captures the potential violence in the mundane morning routine of a serial killer. Extreme close-up shots reveal the brutality looming barely beneath the surface of Dexter’s everyday activities. Familiar imagery of ordinary objects — otherwise innocuous — deceptively assumes new meaning.
DK’s Dexter main titles have been lauded by The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, and Esquire, who noted that the show’s „warped sensibility [can be seen] in Dexter’s audaciously witty opening-title sequence;“ also, voted by the A.V. Club as #3 in „Opening Credit Sequence That Fit Their Shows Perfectly“ in the history of television.
DK’s 2007 Emmy award marks three wins (including the 2002 Emmy for Main Title Design Emmy for HBO’s Six Feet Under), ten nominations in total, over the past six years. Dexter accolades also include a 2007 Telly and a Broadcast Design Award. The Creative Arts Emmy Awards will air on E! Network this Saturday, September 15 th.
