If the idea is at the heart of everything, then I would like you to think of a movie that you love. Then look at its current title sequence and come up with a new one.
Sketch up the rough idea in the form of a storyboard. Your storyboard needs to be at 30 frames and should be for at least 1minute of motion design.
The first thing i did was reviewing some of my favorite intros from my favorite shows and movies.Here are a few of my choices :
The Last Samurai :
Marco Polo :
Black Sails :
So with this there is a definite historical and especially an Asian vibe in my personal preferences. This is no secret to me personally but it sheds some light on what style and influences i might go for.
The specific Title i am redrawing a new intro / story board for is “The Last Samurai”.
It should last for about two minutes and the story board contains 45 frames.
The last samurai`s story is somewhat based on a true story. A french man by the name of Jules Brunet : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6m7WLmAUeY
