Making an amazing unofficial Tintin title sequence will get you to make the official next one
There are three things I love: amazing motion-digital art, success stories and Tintin, the graphic adventure series by Herge. And this post combines all three of them.
James Curran is a London-based animator and designer who one day, with the upcoming Adventures of Tintin film, directed by Steven Spielberg looming in the coming months, decided to make a fan title sequence of Tintin just for the love of the series and passion for art. The result is a simple, yet gorgeous 2D-3D hybrid animation incorporating all the elements from all of the 24 books while integrated with the classic opening score from the TV-animated series.
If that isn’t inspiring enough, the video is so amazing that film collaborator Edgar Wright showed this to the legendary Steven Spielberg. Thus got him to contact Curran to invite him to the UK premiere and HIRED him for the next Tintin film. Who knew that doing something just for the love of it will get you noticed and take you off to do great things.
