Learning Activity- Playing with ideas

If the idea is at the heart of everything, then I would like you to think of a movie that you love. Then look at its current title sequence and come up with a new one.

Sketch up the rough idea in the form of a storyboard. Your storyboard needs to be at 30 frames and should be for at least 1 minute of motion design

I have been indulging myself in the world of motion graphics this week, it has been inspiring and I have learned a lot of things. I am really exited to start with the mandatory assignment for this course so I tried to get the learning activity out-of-the-way so I could start focusing on the big things. However this was far from an easy task, so in the process I still learned a lot of things.

The first thing is that it takes a lot of time to plan a sequence, you must have a clear idea in your mind, pay attention to detail and draw the same things over and over. While I searched through my favorite movies I found a lot of awesome and clever opening titles, these inspired me a lot.

The movie I ended up choosing is “Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Poulain”. I actually really loved the opening titles of the movie but decided either way to make my own version.


Here is my sketch:


And here are the screenshots of the notes I took while watching the Lynda video about After Effects:
