This sequence sets the stage and the time period - a kinetic piece on a train that's almost abstracted, playing with light and contrast.

It's inspired by a Zoetrope and in the original design, the train was going to form out of unspooling celluloid.
The strobic nature of the locomotive is explored to create tricks of light and transitions. Titles are hidden in the shadows, revealed briefly by passing shafts of light before disintegrating back into the darkness.The letters that disappear from the credits make up the word LADY!
