This was a uni
project and the brief was to create a title sequence from a movie called Blue
Velvet, which is a 1986 American mystery film.
Blue Velvet tells
a story about a guy who discovers that he lives in two worlds at the same time,
one of which is pleasant, the other terrifying. He met the one he loved yet he
also met a club singer with a complex mind who’s been persecuted a psychotic.
The bright intro of this title sequence that gradually becomes darker with
blood represents that there’s evil in every love. The movement of crumpled
cassette tape portrays the complex and horrifying mind of the psychotic.

"The fearful knowledge that what
most of us consider our deepest and strongest desires are not our own, that our
dreams and fantasies are only copies, audio and video tapes, of the desires of
others and our utterances of them lip-synching of these circulating, endlessly
reproduced and reproducible desires." - Michael Moon
