About the series: In conjunction with the Museum of the Moving Image’s symposium on HBO’s The Wire, the museum commissioned five video essays for its online magazine, Moving Image Source, breaking down the show’s distinctive opening credits season by season. The essays are based on Andrew Dignan’s 2006 article “The Wire and the Art of the Credits Sequence.” Adapted and narrated by Dignan, and edited by Kevin B. Lee and Matt Zoller Seitz, the series of short films, titled Extra Credit, is now up and running at MOMI’s website. Each installment also includes the text of Dignan’s narration.
