Multi-disciplinary production company Spittn Image and founding EP Melissa Ciampa continue to make their mark in the print and social media campaign realm with alluring, highly-stylized imagery for FX’s “American Horror Story - Apocalypse” & “Always Sunny In Philadelphia – Season 13.”

In their fifth installment with the “American Horror Story” franchise, Spittn Image transcends standards of production to reinforce excellence in photography and design with a unique blend of surrealistic compositions, colors and themes that support the creative evolution of the series itself. The through-line story arc of the show and its ingenious commentary on the political and emotional climate of our world is powerful, and this year there are two impeccable approaches to the vision – Frank Ockenfels captures the creatively haunting images for the Key Art, and Kurt Iswarienko seizes the essence of the story in the cast gallery images.

"'American Horror Story' is a special kind of horror genre to Spittn Image, a series very dear to us, as we’ve had the incredible opportunity to work on it for the last 5 seasons,” says Spittn Image EP Melissa Ciampa. “There are a lot of hours on-set that support the vision of these creatives, and the end result makes our job exciting and so worth it.”

With "Always Sunny In Philadelphia" and their "Sunny the 13th" campaign theme, Spittn Image grabs attention with innovation in a horror spoof print shoot for one of America’s favorite comedy series. On location, the team was able to bring to life that perfectly eerie quality of the good ‘ole outdoors, captured beautifully with the eye of Photographer Patrick McElhenny and FX Network creatives. 

“I love working on location with the FX team. I believe it lends to the authentic components that bring the vision of a still photo shoot to life,” concludes Ciampa.
