VFX FESTIVAL 2017

ESCAPE STUDIOS 2017

TITLE SEQUENCE  | I directed this project with the collaboration of Mill+ (The Mill) and we created the opening title sequence for the VFX Festival 2017. I generated the idea and led the team to bring the project to life from the initial creative concept to the final execution, ensuring that a number of unique ideas worked together in a bold and intriguing way.

In order to keep the concept firmly focused on the title of the festival, the team wanted the titles to appear as if they were a VFX breakdown though the use of transition wipes, wireframe views, and software passes, usually reserved for behind the scenes footage. These elements were then used to help build the narrative of the titles, making for a more beautiful interpretation of a VFX breakdown story.

The text appears with transition wipes over the top of the imagery to reveal multiple levels of render, as if each name is being unpeeled with every scene. There are also numerous changes to the lighting of each setting, this together with the colours, and the 3D elements, unravel at pace to create a sequence of graphic yet fluid visuals for the viewer.
