For my opening credits project, I drew inspiration from Mathieu Kassovitz's film "La Haine." The film centers on three protagonists living in a suburban area outside Paris amidst daily riots. Shot in black and white over a single day, it offers a raw glimpse into their lives. To capture this essence, I filmed with a MiniDV camera, embracing the film's gritty aesthetic. I created animated typography using stencils sprayed with white paint onto black paper, drawing from street art influences. Additionally, I incorporated footage of individuals resembling the main characters' eyes, creating a triptych effect. Sound-wise, I composed a hip-hop beat in Logic Pro X, syncing it with the typography rhythm and imagery cuts. The opening credits aim to authentically portray the lives of Vinz, Samir, and Hubert in a radical and immersive way.
