With the brief to create an animation that reflected something experimental, eclectic and artistic, the pair created the concept of a 'digital playground', which we can see here in a warped urban landscape. The images perfectly pair with the distorted sound effects created by world renowned sound designer Echolab, which aided in bringing the dynamic visuals to life.
Fabrice comments, "we came across the idea for the sequence whilst we were experimenting with compositing software Nuke. We liked the way that when you open an image on the wrong canvas size the pixels are stretched and depending on the pictures used you can get an amazing colour range.
We then applied this effect to motion and volume. The first tests were very convincing, giving us some really cool surreal and abstract shots, combined with elegance and subtle color tones. We then developed this further to produce the final piece."
Using Maya and AFX they were able to create the landscape from scratch, before twisting and animating it with a series of digital glitches. Jules comment, "Title sequences are a fantastic creative opportunity to create something engaging and also play with typography, which is a strong graphic element by itself.
Mill+ Executive Director Stephen Venning say's: "I think this is one of the guys' best directorial pieces to date and is totally unique in many ways. I'd love to see these guys directing ever more high profile work for us as I think their time has really now arrived".
