Working in conjunction with the Director, the whole concept for the sequence and overall design is based on the human biology and the creation / destruction of them.
The sequence it's visualising what happens in after the drug overdose in a decay that brings back a dark life.
Initial discovery of typography combination and balance for the logotitle definition, as a step forward benchmark, inspiraion and discovery phase brainstorming with the director and production team,
Exploring typography combination with clear connection of 80's Horror artworks, providing a sense of modernity in the combianation of minimal bold typography.
Going forward with the exploration designing an handmade typography, converting it in 3d and using materials rendering delivering a sense of decay on the typography itself.
At the Exibion end, POV when turing to the exit reveal an old polariod frame to take a picture of the whole discovere collection. Promoting sharaility on social network.
The final result is keeping the sans minimal and straight forward typography, removing the handmade type - as too connected to the Horror movies clique - and applying on it the decay process as a point of connection of the before scenes life & death .
- life cycle -
Following the movie scene storytelling, finding visual references to be used in both concept and related language, the biological essence and related life cycle being alterated in a melting and evolving process through the decay and "reborn" has been leading the next step of creative development.
The usage of analogue techniques with ferrofluids and glowing liquids in combination with magnet and physical forces has been adopted. Recording all the random creations of given by the different density and material composition with UV lights - all the clips have been used as the background of the entering seuqence and closing tiltes.
The same appraoch has been translated in the above logotitle creting a coherent connection as holistic concept applyed.
