This assignment focuses on composition, typographic hierarchy, pacing and time and sequence of type and image. Students selected a film of their choice to create a unique and appropriate title sequence.
Boy A is a film with a recurring theme of self-reinvention, told from the perspective of a fragile man who is released from a juvenile detention center after a lengthy term served for child murder. Utilizing various cold tones of ink, I chose to present the movie's mood in what seems to be, initially, an abstraction of colored droplets. They later formulate into a shadow and linger behind the figure of a distant man, representative of the lead character and his hidden past that eventually catches up to him regardless of his efforts to escape.
The medium used is also meant to foreshadow the film's ending (spoiler alert), during which it is implied that the character drowns.
