FITC Amsterdam

2014 Opening Titles

One of the world’s most prestigious conferences focused on design & technology, FITC seeks to inspire those who attend to marry the two disciplines like never before. We at Leviathan were honored to create the opening titles for the festival’s Amsterdam event, and took the creative challenge to heart. Set in a painter’s studio, our story of every artist’s quandary moves from macro to micro, showing the fantastic world that exists within a drop of paint or the bristles within a brush; all made possible with custom-built microscopic motion control camera, and a love for the art of title sequences.

Also, be sure to check out “Underscope” our behind-the-scenes documentary here.
