yU+co sheds light on Green Lantern titles
Take a look at the design studio’s approach to the main title sequence for Green Lantern
yU+co has presented its latest work from Hollywood blockbuster Green Lantern on its website.
Director Martin Campbell and producer Donald DeLine invited the studio to create a 90-second opening for the superhero movie.
Using Maya and Cinema 4D, as well as After Effects, the studio used stereo 3D to take the viewer through space with some striking and stylised visuals.
Inspired by 2001: A Space Odyssey, the studio incorporated an organic technique. Using a high-res RED camera, the studio shot a variety of colored paints and lacquers as they’re poured into water and quickly spreads out.
Those images, when blown up in size and composited into the 3D background, created the unusual effect and instantly resembled galactic nebulas.
“It is important to think of 3D in the design stage, so you actually create a truly stereoscopic sequence,’’ says creative director Garson Yu. “For the opening, we tried to maximize the 3D effect by constantly moving past and through objects, nebulas and energy fields. All of the design events and elements are staged in stereo so they are all in truly logical 3D space. Without logic behind it the design won’t make sense.”
