Taking a break from an animating, I’ve been working on the title for the film, trying to nail down the look and feel of it.
It was quite easy for me to think about actually as I already had ideas in mind as I was inspired by simple titles like the ones from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, with the golden text with damaged, chipped edges.
This was mostly because I know that my short film is an adventure film, so I wanted to capture that in the title. But I didn’t limit myself to that idea, as I tried out another style as you can see in the slideshow above, but inevitably went with the fancier writing.
Once I had that I whacked it into Photoshop, inked the writing and messed around with it to see, if I could replicate the style. But I just ended up with a lot of results that I didn’t like, even having my peers agree with me when I showed them.
I then showed my design to Max who was quite intrigued by the design that I was going for, and offered to create the title for me instead. I immediately agreed as his knowledge of Photoshop was superior to mine.
He gave me an idea of what he’s going to aim for, and that he’s going to go for something similar to the title for the internet series: Tales of Alethrion
He’s gonna work on it over the weekend for me so hopefully by Monday I’ll have something to have for the submission next Thursday.
