For the first vfx post production brief we are asked to create a teaser trailer to a new anthology series based on the works of Jules Verne.
•Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
•Journey to the Centre of the Earth
•From the Earth to the Moon
•Around the World in Eighty Days
•The Mysterious Island
•Five Weeks in a Balloon
I liked the concept of a balloon as a focal to a short scene integrating into a title. I considered what kind of imagery each title would convey and could be interpreted by an audience and I thought Five Weeks seemed to have a strong focal point (that of a balloon) that could be worked onto a world – I would only have to use a few elements to tell the essence of the story and give enough information to speculate on a narrative but also hold back and encourage the audience to want to find out more.
This is an early idea on how I could introduce imagery in a cinematic way using few elements that could be layered with blending effects and create something otherworldly.
