The live action component came from filmed sequences from the drama, which I then manipulated.
Sxsw is also miles cooler so who ferita da taglio a lembo needs the stuffy Oscars anyway!
I began with a test shot, and worked on that over and over until I got the desired effect.
Which tools and software did you use to put it all together?I wanted the sequence to look as if you are flicking through Da Vinci's notebooks while on acid!Beginning with Bear McCreary's driving score, the sequence descends from painterly clouds and a Florentine horizon to reveal reams of hand sketched notes a collection soon recognized as masterworks from da Vincis own hand.Da Vinci's Demons illuminates new facets of his feverishly inventive and enigmatic mind.You have the option of creating a frame to be placed into the animation and the result is a crazy jumble of styles and flash frames.
My favourite part of the sequence is the close up of the hawks head.
The recognition as a craft at that level would be nice.
Give us a little background on yourself and Huge.
I didn't believe it until I tried it myself but it's true.
Do you think there should be a Best Title Design category at the Oscars?I joined a little over two years ago, but the company itself has been around for just over 20 years, primarily designing broadcast titles.Da Vinci's Demon's scripts and an early trailer so we knew the series was going to be exciting and different.View 3 images, title sequence pitch v1, 09/27/12, what were your original concepts for the sequence and how did they develop?David is very open and straight out of the gate it was apparent he was a design enthusiast.
David kept stressing that he wanted it to feel very contemporary and to avoid the pitfall of having it look like you are watching The History Channel.
From pitch to delivery the sequence took roughly four months.
