Coming to America 25,000 Years Ago: Atsula and her dwindling tribe follow their ancient god Nunyunnini to America where they must choose between faith and survival.
Each episode of the hit TV series American Gods (based off Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name) kicks off with a ‘Coming to America’ story. These stories depict the old gods and their diverse stories of immigration to the new world, America. Sufficed to say, it was an honour to be invited to create one of these episode openers. We hope you enjoy this brief glimpse behind the scenes.
Tune into American Gods Season 1, Episode 5 "Lemon Scented You" (Directed by Vincenzo Natali) to see the short in context, or view it online here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwTk7cbazE8
