The Assignment: Redesign the title sequence for a movie of your choice using kinetic typography, narrative, graphics and sound in after effects.
Snowpiercer directed by Bong Joon Ho
"Set in a future where a failed climate-change experiment kills all life on the planet except for a lucky few who boarded the Snowpiercer, a train that travels around the globe, where a class system emerges." - IMDB
My take on Snowpiercer's titles uses fluid, animated black and white illustrations that fluctuate in proportions. The idea behind this was to mimic the film's motif of balance and the fluctuation of power among classes. I chose ominous, suspensful music to help introduce the audience to the setting of a bleaker future while still sounding exciting.
