When we started working on the official Opening Titles for TOCA ME 2017, our goal was to create a cinematic title sequence which subtly hints at the amazing speaker line-up, featuring creatives like Joshua Davis, GMUNK, Mario Klingemann, Seb Lester, Keiichi Matsuda and Dominic Wilcox.
This year’s theme, to “DREAM BIG” led us to create a surreal and intriguing journey—beginning with gentle camera moves which reveal a bizzare and mysterious world, slowly discovering a sleeping girl who dreams of creativity and ideas, which we visualized by projecting glimpses of each artist’s work on to her face.
We used an ultra-high-res face scan of a model, created by Daniel Hennies, which is only illuminated by those projected sequences on its various surfaces. Each shot was precisely crafted to progress outwards from a macro-level of detail, and continuously reveal more and more of the subject.
