Title sequences for television series have to hint at the upcoming content but shouldn’t reveal too much about it. Dan Braga tried his hand at this in the course of his digital media design studies.
Dan is studying digital media design at the Billy Blue College in Sydney, Australia. An important part of this program of study is motion graphics. The starting point and inspiration for ‘Negative Mass’ was a short briefing, which set forth that students had to create and realize a music video or title sequence for a television series. Dan, who leaned toward the idea of creating a title sequence, first imagined what it could look like: The title would have to hint at the show’s concept in order to spark the viewer’s interest – but not provide too many details. ‘Negative Mass’ was the title of the show, which only existed in Dan’s imagination and for which he created a title sequence using Cinema 4D.
