Led by Creative Director Duncan Elms, Elastic’s main titles for AMC Plus’ adult animated drama Pantheon quickly illustrate humankind’s transition from analog to digital, imagining the day when even human consciousness can be uploaded to the cloud.
The science-fiction series is based on a collection of short stories by Ken Liu and is centered around teenager Maddie (Katie Chang).
