BLOW UP CREDIT SEQUENCE VIDEO


A CLOSER LOOK


In this personal project, I crafted an alternative opening credit sequence for the 1966 movie Blow-Up. After watching the film carefully, I drew inspiration from various themes in the film. Some of the key aspects of the movie are photography, the placement of the camera, and things being hidden. A note: the footage used in the credit sequence is not my own; I worked on the video editing, animation, and other post-production details.

Producing the credit sequence forced me to consider type, image, and audio, weaving them together.

USING THEMES IN THE VIDEO


The themes of photography, the camera perspective, and concealment drove the movie. It only makes sense that they would play a similar role in the credit sequence to foreshadow the film to come.

Photography

Photography was the main subject matter of the movie. The main character is a photographer, and one of the images he captures is what sparks the rest of the plot. I chose footage from photoshoots to begin setting the stage for the film to come.

Camera Perspective

Many of the shots throughout the film brought attention to the camera placement and audience’s perspective. I tried to highlight this through my selection several unique and composed shots during video production. To note again: I simply curated the footage. It is from several YouTube uploads and I do not claim rights to them.

Concealment

The last theme I incorporated was concealment. Many shots in the film left part of the view obscured or blocked. I tried to capture this through compositions in footage selected. I also weaved the type between and behind objects to further this concept.
