Blend Opening Titles

The team behind Wine After Coffee asked us to create the opening titles for the third installment of Blend (a big ol’ animation festival in Vancouver). We couldn’t say yes faster! Our role was simple but important– introduce all the speakers, set a tone for the weekend at Blend, and leave our animation comrades with something to talk about.
