Project Flamel Title Sequence
Project Flamel is a title sequence for an imaginary TV series set in a reality where eternal life can be achieved with the help of alchemy. I use the metaphor of turning lead into gold to show the transformation of human immortality and aid the narrative with elements of UI to place the story in a more futuristic time.
This is a project I made for my Motion Title Sequence class at VFS
Project Flamel is a fictional TV series, it takes place in a future where technology has finally reach a point where eternal life may be possible with the help of alchemy.
Tasks: Art Direction, Animation and Texturing
Software: Cinema 4D , Adobe After Effects
Render: Redshift Renderer
For my motion piece I look inspiration on contrast, gold over black or white. Since I specifically picture this project as a journey to find eternal life on a far future context, I needed to establish key elements that would represent the concept of eternal life.
For my motion piece I wanted to work with 3d objects, lighting and beautiful compositions. I looked for inspiration from other title sequences that apply these elements to create strong visuals and mysterious moods.
Alchemy and UI
The challenge was to translate a almost lost concept like alchemy and show it in a futuristic, yet mysterious way.
For this piece I made a research on alchemic symbology and terminology to then use to communicate the idea that this "old" concept is being translate into a more contemporary form though and HUD design.
