Motion Test


Main on End title sequence - pitch

I was very excited to take part on pitching a 3D main on end title for the highly anticipated movie Avatar. We were given the last shot of the film in which jake (the protagonist) opens his eyes and we cut to a green wormhole with the closing music track. Not knowing too much of the story, I found the avatar teaser and had it playing in loop to start looks for cues and inspirations.

The shot which resonated with me the most was when Jake was hooked up to his avatar via fibre optics and I started to create the frame based on the concept of synapses connecting to the soul of the avatar. We got through the first stage of the pitch and were asked to present some motion tests where I worked with the 3D artist to produce a rough test, unfortunately they have decided on a simpler approach.
