London-based Huge Designs UK created an apocalyptic feel for the BBC’s three-part retelling of HG Wells’ classic War of the Worlds.

This version of the story is set in contemporary Europe, following the pockets of humanity left on Earth after a devastating extra-terrestrial strike. Huge Designs shot the above main-title sequence from the point of view of the conquering aliens. The sequence was created from treated live-action footage and some 3D animation.
