We had the pleasure of designing and shooting this opening sequence for up-coming Greek short film of Giannis Tzouvelekis. It incorporates a lot of macro or out of focus footage from the nightlife of Athens, silent streets, sodium vapor lights, etc. The type was designed, printed then laid on mirrors to give it a double impression and finally shot in 4K and composited on the final video.
From the beginning we had decided on using different optical effects like prisms, mirrors and other in-lens effects to not give away to much of the city but also to
accordingly "dirty-up" the image a bit.
The titles were printed up and dirtied up (scratched, flashed, erased in parts, etc.) then shot again in 4K and composited to the final video.
