Hypothesis

Classical Narcissism, darkness & intrigue

A personal study into an area of keen interest for me – Title design. In order to stay sharp and remain relevant I tasked myself with the ideation and creation of a title sequence for a TV show. Doing so I challenge myself to look at realism within 3D and to continue utilising my post production/editing skillset in After Effects and Premiere Pro.

Plan & ideation

First I want ideate what it is I want to produce. The theme from this study is to look at stone textures so stone elements will feature throughout in a stone environment. I also want to look at the production of the overall sequence in regards to how it will look/animate and plan early on. The theme of the show is about a a cunning narcissist art dealer so the introduction of stone statues is fitting and the selection of these will be important to displaying feelings throughout the sequence such as dominance & woe etc.

Purpose

TV Show

Shots

Twelve

Aspect Ratio

2:35:1

Material & lighting

For the material there’s a main focus on realism and minute detailing such as decolourisation and wear to major parts as well as the edges. The lighting will be important throughout the whole scene as this will be used to set the mood and will be a strong animated feature within the final sequence.

Stylescreens

Initial look development

Animation

Simplistic: Based on smooth camera animation & animated lighting

Final screens

After working the animations and animating the lighting it was time to build and piece it all together.
