The titles of these posts are getting a little campy, but it’s late and I lean towards the irreverent when trying to discuss myself. Days later I am discussing months later. Does that matter? Probably not. Who knows how you got here. Maybe I asked you to witness this, maybe you stumbled upon it. I am feeling a bit of deja vu, so forgive me if we have been here before.
I would like to say that I completely planned that intro but it sort of came out and then I realized how fitting it was. Last fall I was referred to Dustin Clingan, a director out in LA who was working on a short film and wanted an opening title sequence. Having gotten the rough edges smoothed out with the years’ earlier two projects and some work that should see the light of day in 2017, I was anxious to keep moving on the motion graphics.
This time I produced the sequence before and during the production and post production of the actual short. The story is very cerebral and lacking a big budget or any resources from the as yet to be shot footage I needed to translate the suspenseful and moody script into an opening that I didn’t want to see distract from or give away any of the greater details.
I spent a week shooting ambient scenes that I could incorporate into the opening and designed the sequence to set the mood for what was to come. All in all a nice piece for what I hope leads audiences into the story on the right note.
