STONE COLD CATWALK TITLES
We had the pleasure of collaborating with our friend and talented director, Matthew Mc Dermott,
together with other talented artists to work on a short film project called Monster Monologue for the Ministry of Stories.
We were brought on board to design the end titles and credits for the short film.
We love the portrayal of the character of Medusa on the short film.
Underneath her strikingly beautiful and glamorous exterior, it is nice to see the other side of Medusa,
vulnerable and unconfident sometimes.
We wanted to inject this contrast into the titles and the credit sequence.
THE TITLE SEQUENCE
Matt had an idea for the end title as a starting point. Using a vintage light bulb signage as inspiration, we created the look of the title. We decided to build an entire theatre in 3D and have the title on the centre of the stage.
As a representation of Medusa’s imperfections, the title settles with a few broken bulbs and loosened letters.
We got inspired to extend the story and show the aftermath of Medusa’s entrance to the stage
by introducing some characters that were turned into stone.
As for the rest of the credit sequence, we showed a few extreme close-ups of the setting, all related to Medusa’s characteristics.
