House of Cards Intro Time-lapses by District 7
Nearly a year ago District 7 Media was contacted by Netflix to have a meeting with Director David Fincher. A man who has directed some of the most influential films to date, which include, Fight Club, Seven, The Panic Room, The Game, The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. After sitting down to a lunch with him on a unseasonably warm March afternoon, he asked if we would be interested in creating a set of moody time-lapses that he would then use for the intro to his new show, ‘House of Cards’. Who says no to David Fincher? Not many people. After we had a good conversion about what he wanted we parted ways and we set out on our new adventure. Our crew, which consisted of, Andrew Geraci, Arthur Breese, Walter Wayman, Elliot Fabrizo, Ray Flores and Cecilio Ricardo, set out on a 6 month adventure to capture D.C in all of its grungy and dirty glory. After spending countless weekends and nights shooting and downloading we finished out great adventure at the end of July, 2012. It’s with great pleasure that we can finally share our work with the world and to the viewers of Netflix. It was an eye-opening journey that not only allowed us to learn and improve on our time-lapse techniques but also opened us to a new market place for our craft. The final edit of the opening was produced by Angus Wall and his crew (which they did an outstanding job!).
If you’re a Netflix user make sure to check out the series now. It stars Kevin Spacey, Robbin Wright, Kate Mara and a bunch of other incredibly talented actors and actresses.
I would like to personally thank all of our viewers and friends who helped support us during this adventure. You’re the reason why we do what we do.
