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

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.
