Shot with Lumix GH2, Gorillapod, 14-140mm and 7-14mm Lumix Lenses. Edited with Final Cut Pro. Postproduction with After Effects.
Thanks everyone for the nice comments. Since so many asked for more information: The sunsets/sunrises were shot with an intervalometer at 10 sec (the Balloons in the intro were at 1 or 2 sec) Most of the other stuff was shot in regular video HBR mode and later sped up in post to whatever speed needed.
The effect was created manually in AE and so were many masks. Quite a lot of shots were handheld, since I travelled without tripod, so they were also stabilzed in AE later.

Graduation project 2011
Designed as a possible title sequence for a fictitious documentary, this film shows a history of the title sequence in a nutshell. The sequence includes all the names of title designers who had a revolutionary impact on the history and evolution of the title sequence. The names of the title designers all refer to specific characteristics of the revolutionary titles that they designed.
This film refers to elements such as the cut and shifted characters of Saul Bass' Psycho title, the colored circles of Maurice Binder's design for Dr. No and the contemporary designs of Kyle Cooper and Danny Yount.
This title sequence refers to the following designers and their titles:
Georges Méliès - Un Voyage Dans La Lune, Saul Bass - Psycho, Maurice Binder - Dr. No, Stephen Frankfurt - To Kill A Mockingbird, Pablo Ferro - Dr. Strangelove, Richard Greenberg - Alien, Kyle Cooper - Seven, Danny Yount - Kiss Kiss Bang Bang / Sherlock Holmes
