This is the final render for my title sequence for the film 'The Butterfly Effect'. The theme of my title was to show the chaos that the lead character goes through in the film. I took a lot inspiration for this title sequence from the works of R/GA, and in particular their title for the films 'Alien' and 'Altered States'. I like the way the abstract shapes transition across the screen revealing the text and increasing the suspense. I wanted to keep the audience guessing what the shapes are until the final zoom out to reveal the ink butterfly.
For the background video I hand rendered a letter to the lead characters mother regarding her sons Blackouts. These blackouts and memory lapses are the source of Evan's (Ashton Kutcher) weird time travelling phenomenon.
