Title Sequence

This work is an alternative title sequence of the documentary film about the life of one of the most famous drummers in the world, Mr. Baker.
This video is created analogously. Glow sticks were placed on a drum, which jump through the air when the drum is beaten. Various perspectives and intentional blurring alienate the glow sticks, which produces interesting pictures.

Futura, since it perfectly harmonises with the image of the drums, was chosen for typography: the angles and edges are reflected in the sharp sounds of the instrument, at the same time as roundness of the letters symbolise the rotund drums. Because the typography is clear and distinctive, it constitutes good balance to the scattered pictures. The glow sticks jump up in front as well as behind the font, which neatly integrates it into the spatial picture. The music was recorded and played by myself.
