HBO Feature Presentation
The feature presentation sequences introduced in the revamp lasted barely a year. Pittard Sullivan created a new sequence for HBO – and for the first time since 1987, there was to be just one open used for theatrical movies. The most common – and very short – sequence featured a camera zooming up to look at an HBO-shaped bay, with a grand fanfare. However, viewers turning into HBO's weekend premieres were given a treat. What appears to be a short, run-of-the mill CGI open is in fact a very truncated version of a much longer sequence. Here, Pittard Sullivan revisits Liberty's HBO City, but kicks the pace into overdrive and increases the scope. Instead of just traversing the city, suburbs, and country, we travel into the mountains and desert as well.
