Inspired by jazz photography I worked on the concept for this main title sequence through mind maps and exploration sketches. I modelled each illustration in 3D and painted over them frame by frame, then played with different combinations, adding more distortion and uncertainty. The typeface was custom-designed to complement the handmade feel of the piece.
This main title sequence is based on a demo TV series portraying Marlon, a musician who believes to be dominated by his 'obstinate' trumpet and starts losing control of his thoughts. Confused and isolated, he claims mastery over it, but things don’t get any easier.
