This is an university assignment where I created a 30 second intro for a fictional TV series. The intro is based on an art book called "The Electric State", written and illustrated by Simon Stålenhag.
My concept for the intro developed into bringing life to the paintings in the book. I achieved this by animating them and adding great details. The art book has a 80/90s mysterious retro aesthetic feel, which I aimed to replicate.
I've added a great amount of details. My goal was for the viewer to spot new details each time they saw the intro and most importantly, never skip the intro. Excerpts of details:
The intro was primarly made in Adobe After Effects. Below is a breakdown video on how the intro was made, layer by layer.
