Blur Studio’s first stab at a film’s opening title sequence is dark, strange – almost nightmarish – and makes for compelling viewing
The title sequence of David Fincher’s movie adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo really makes you sit up and watch.
The two-and-half minute credits for Fincher’s adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s hit novel displays a stunning combination of 3D scans of key characters (Daniel Craig as Mikael Blomkvist and Rooney Mara as Salander) and iconic images and shapes, taken from the Trilogy. During the sequence, these emerge and are sucked back into a dark, oily fluid, which has been created using RealFlow 2012. The result, Blur’s Co-founder Tim Miller says, will ‘Redefine titles for our generation’.
