The Ecstasy of Gold

A spin off of their wildly successful Curse of Oak Island series, Lost Gold of World War II was a brand new series for History Channel. With a story rooted firmly in the past, the marketing team at History came to Roger and I to create a teaser animation to announce the series and establish the narrative of the first season of the show.


A combination of archival footage, photography, custom illustrations, and show footage, the promo guides viewers from the final days of World War 2 through to the introduction of our cast via a glowing, growing, golden path.

A big thanks to Jake and Ming for all of their amazing work bringing this project to life, as well as the entire team at Roger and History Channel.
