Movie title opening sequence -inspiration?
I am a 4th year animation student on the last week of finishing my film, and i am looking to create an interesting opening title for my thesis film, but i am having trouble coming up with ideas.
My film is called stroke of sin, and it was originally inspired by milton’s, paradise lost, more specifically book 2, when lucifer falls from heaven and becomes the ruler of hell. Its an animated film about 2 police K-9s who end up in a quarrel, resulting in the fallen fate of one of the dogs, and it is mixed with live action backgrounds.
Since the story is strongly influenced by the concepts of hell and the devil, (btw..im not a devil worshiper or anything, just a story fanatac, and was really inspired by paradise lost when coming up with the idea for my thesis)…anyways, I want to incorporate similar concepts of things relating to hell/the devil into the title sequence some how, possibly with some fire or burning text, also the idea of using a stroke animation, somehow…..im not sure exactly though.
now the opening shot is of the sun beginning to set over NYC, so im debating on whether or not to have the title appear there, or before it, i really want to grab peoples attention with the title and try to get them thinking about the story’s association with hell.
Ive been search tutorials, and forum sites for some inspiration on cool ways to animate the title, so i was hoping by posting here someone would be able to offer some additional suggestions, tutorials, or sites i may check out, whether it be a site dedicated to movie title sequences, or effects similar to what i want.
im not set on having an extremely elaborate title animation, i just want something that is revelent to the story, but more captivating than having a title card right before it starts.
any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
