Into the Sun | Title Sequence

Design

Into the Sun is a short film by Lukas Borovicka about a group of kids who find something mysterious in the desert. To ensure the ending made sense, I created a sequence that provides background on the first test of the atomic bomb.

The film has a bright and child-like feel to it while the subject matter is very serious. I pulled my color palette from the costumes. By toning down the brightness of those colors, adding archival footage, and overlaying textures, I was able to bridge the gap between these two concepts.

Below are alternative styleframes I created to show options without archival footage.
