The Giver Title Sequence

Created by Mandie Stanton

Music by Marco Beltrami from The Giver Original Soundtrack

Software: Cinema 4D & Adobe After Effects

The concept for this project was to create a title sequence for a novel of your choice; I chose The Giver, written by Lois Lowry. One of the themes in the novel is isolation from your community, and that became the main idea for my sequence. I took a more metaphorical approach to the sequence with balls to represent individuals in a community. 

The sequence was built out of many scenes in Cinema 4D and edited together in After Effects. All the scenes are built to be confrontational or only allow one outcome, similar to how the community is built in the story. The clean white, sterile color pallet describes a society of no individuality, accept for the white ball that competes against the views of normality, and goes against the black.
