This is the opening titles design I created for the film "Being Nigel". The film takes place in a bar and focuses on the comedic side of false identities, so names on bar napkins seemed to be the perfect fit. I got some help on the Synthetic Human Pictures icon at the beginning by my good friend Hayden Blades and spent about 4 hours filming the drop of the napkins, failing more times than I'd like to admit. Finally, towards the end of a long and frustrating day, I successfully recorded all the napkin drops in proper sequence. Two days later, I realized I spelled an actor's name wrong and I had to do it all over again. The second attempt was much quicker than the first.

This type of title sequence is by far my favorite. Using elements in the real world to introduce the stars of the film seem to just fit better with the actual movie (in my opinion). I enjoy creating all CGI titles as well, but I'm always going to lean towards this style of title design.

Thanks for watching!
