Project Overview
Illustrator | AfterEffects | Motion Design
Circle is an American science fiction psychological horror-thriller movie. It didn't have a title sequence until now. The actor's names and titles including the movie's production information, are the focus within the animation. The graphic visuals are supporting elements to help make names stand out more.

Visual Style Frames
Since my title sequence had more of an abstract appearance with the triangles and circles, the only visual style I could create was for the title of the movie shown at the end of the animation. 

Visual Style #1 is just bold white text to be similar to the body font used for the actor's names. Visual Style #2 has a gradient applied to it. Visual Style #3 has a slightly darker red outline. Visual Style #4 was the most effective based on the professor's and peers' feedback. The letter i is different because it symbolizes every person in the movie looking out for themselves.

Visual Storyboard
The storyboard forebodes what viewers will see throughout the movie. For instance, the characters wake up in a dark room so I made the animation background black. Another example would be the white triangles. Each character wakes up in a separate triangle. Viewers won't understand what the triangles mean until later throughout the movie.

This is a preliminary title sequence for Circle. Most of the transitioning of scenes follows the beat of the background music.
