I wrote myself a brief... it's mantra was "Journey through space and time".

First section is the Doctors watch, and we fly inside. The journey through the cog-wheels end with our exit through the untempered schism. And into an escher-esque timey wimey never-ending clock face (a metaphor of time travel and the time vortex).

Our journey catapults us through the vortex into a void where the seal of Rassilon is drawn in aged metal, accompanied by the Doctor Who logo, with some subtle embellishments. The seal of Rassilon burns away, reminding us of the Doctor's disdain for the Time Lords; revealing the new Doctor's reflection in the back of the watch which then tumbles away to the black hole in the distance.

I wanted it to feel ancient and have a bit of a steampunk aesthtic.

I was inspired by the Will.I.AM video  - T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)  I loved the idea of star traces flying from the edges of the characters...  Lots of rotoscoping on the actors thank god for AE's roto brush.
