How the Dutch Do Title Sequences

We love clever title sequences. And we love a great stop-frame animation. So we’re all over today’s short-and-sweet, the brilliant opening sequence and end titles animation for Dutch science show Het Klokhuis (The Apple Core).

Het Klokhuis is Holland’s oldest and most indiscriminately curious youth TV show, covering everything from how to grow broccoli to dinosaur history to the inner workings of the iPhone. So it’s only fitting the title sequence would embody that techno-curious spirit, partnering with London-based experimental sculptor and designer Jethro Haynes and using the latest 3D printing technology to build the apple core models.

We love the fusion of steampunkish retro-funk and bleeding-edge modern slickness.

Out of Amsterdam’s irreverent KesselsKramer ad agency (try refreshing that head-scratcher of a homepage a few times to see what we mean) and production studio Nexus.
