how to start your own country


Using in-house facilities, leafstorm produced the title sequence for their first major BBC series. The brief was to create a 20 second sequence that would provide the viewer with an insight into the story and reflect Danny Wallace’s childlike optimism as he questions what it is to be a state.

As the series progresses and Danny overcomes a variety of hurdles, the title sequence itself evolves. Building from week to week, Danny’s currency finds a face, his flag an identity and in the end he is seen to be laying down the law. All subtle visual flourishes that underline events in the evolving state - and ultimately make the titles as unique as the series itself.
