LIPSYNC DESIGN was commissioned to create the titles for the epic JRR Tolkien biopic, starring Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins.
The film focuses on the early years of Tolkien’s extraordinary life and director, Dome Karukosi, wanted something that carried the film’s symbolism of light and shade into the end title sequence. To convey this, LIPSYNC used the reoccurring theme of a spinning flickering lantern, casting shadows and conjuring up magical glimpses of fleeting shapes which gradually develop into more defined forms, subtly hinting at demons, knights and the creatures of the fantasy world Tolkien was on the threshold of creating. Using filmed elements, original artwork and motion graphics, the team worked with Adobe Creative Suite – After Effects and Photoshop to achieve this. The result is a stunning and enchanting two-minute end title sequence.
