Something I always look forward to right before American Horror Story or It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres are their ad campaigns. I always find them original and extremely provocative.
Making me very, very envious.
Apparently my jealousy can be attributed to multi-disciplinary LA-based production shop, Spittn Image. The company continues not to disappoint with their alluring and highly stylized imagery for FX’s American Horror Story – Apocalypse & Always Sunny In Philadelphia – Season 13.
Now in their fifth tour of duty with the Ryan Murphy franchise, Spittn Image transcended standards of production to reinforce excellence in photography and design a unique blend of surrealistic compositions, colors and themes that support the creative evolution of the series itself.
The through-line story arc of the show and its wonderful commentary on the political and emotional climate of our world is powerful, and this year there are two impeccable approaches to the vision – Frank Ockenfels captures the creatively haunting images for the Key Art, and Kurt Iswarienko seizes the essence of the story in the cast gallery images.
“American Horror Story is a special kind of horror genre to Spittn Image, a series very dear to us, as we’ve had the incredible opportunity to work on it for the last 5 seasons,” says Spittn Image EP Melissa Ciampa. “There are a lot of hours on-set that support the vision of these creatives, and the end result makes our job exciting and so worth it.”
Take a look below:
With Always Sunny In Philadelphia and their “Sunny the 13th” campaign theme, Spittn Image grabbed attention by spoofing horror for one of America’s favorite comedy series. On location, the team was able to bring to life that perfectly eerie quality of the good ‘ole outdoors, captured beautifully with the eye of Photographer Patrick McElhenny and FX Network creatives.
Just like the shows, the imagery is spectacular and gave the REEL360 team something to wake us up in the afternoon.
