Doctor Strange | Title Sequence

Design

"Connecting to the film’s core symbolism and rich, abstract and mind-bending imagery, we designed a series of intricate mandalas, and animated them using repetition, symmetry and 3D visual mastery." - Sarofsky 

I worked on the design side of the Sarofsky team to create the mandalas. I pulled imagery from the film, sacred geometry and traditional Hindu and Buddhist mandalas. I created each one in Illustrator and then worked with Patrick Coleman, one of the awesome 3D guys, to translate the flat vector designs into Cinema 4D.
