Using the Coen Brother's Dust Bowl-era period film, I redesigned and animated a new film title sequence. It has continually been one of my favorite films, year after year, because of their creative reimagining of the classic story of Homer's tale, The Odyssey.
Inspired by their dedication and detailed accuracy to the 1937 Mississippi setting, I created a new set of titling inspired by the era's handmade and embellished signage. Much like the little shops on the small town streets of the film, I incorporated elaborate flourishes and calligraphic elements into the new titles. This has been one of my favorite projects to work on, as it encompassed both my love for the films of the Coen Brothers as well as my passion for unique typography and lettering.
This project was made using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, and After Effects. All footage and music was taken directly from the film (O Brother, Where Art Thou?; Dir: Joel Coen – 2000; Music: T-Bone Burnett). This piece was presented as part of my final project for a motion graphics course at School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
