We had the opportunity to work on these opening titles by contacting the director of the movie (Elisabeth Vogler) with 4 motion designer friends. I had the idea of having a collaborative work: I started by pitching some styleframes to explain what I had in mind, and then each one of us had to develop their parts the way they wanted, just following some basic rules and guidelines I created to keep some continuity.
The rules were mainly to create abstract compositions inspired by the shapes of letters from the cast's name on screen... but distorted, repeated, enlarged (...) Keeping in mind that the title sequence had to visually represent the sense of getting high, as well as vertigo. In order to do that, each one of us had to work on hypnotizing compositions. I also had to find some pictural guidelines using colors and textures to harmonize our work.
