Opening sequence and promo for Beasts Like Us

Setting the scene for a beautiful yet disturbing Dublin story

Sandymount strand in Dublin is a key location of the film Beasts Like Us. By using the tide as a cinema curtain the opening sequence reveals the strange and the beautiful things that live on the sea floor. They’re submerged and revealed every day and this setting works as the stage for the story that will unfold.

Another key location for the movie is Ireland's Natural History Museum which has lent some cues to the promotion elements.

Arenicola marina
The perculiar Lug worm

The main motif for this project is the coiled castings made by the lug worm Arenicola marina. I’ve used the classical typeface Baskerville which has associations of Natural history encyclopedias and plates.

A lugworm lies in his U-shaped burrow in the sand on a beach with its head at the base of one shaft, swallowing sand from time to time. This makes the columns of sand drop slightly, so there is a periodic sinking of the sand in the saucer-shaped depression. The other shaft is marked by a highly coiled cast of sand, that has been filtered through the worm and is now deprived of all organic matter.
