The new HBO series “The Leftovers” asks many big questions about the meaning of life, the existence of God and the future of the human race. Likewise for the show’s main title sequence in which show creators Damon Lindelof (“Lost”) and writer Tom Perrotta turned to the award-winning creative studio yU+co. and Creative Director Garson Yu to create a concept that matched the ambitions of the show.

“Frescos are like visual history lessons and for this title sequence I wanted to use the look of a classic fresco painting style, but create images that relate to the new dramatic event that is the basis for the show,” Yu says.
