Netflix - Heart of Stone

In crafting the title sequence for the film "Heart of Stone," directed by Tom Harper and starring Gal Gadot, (produced by Netflix) our objective was to enhance the dynamic essence of the movie. Our focus was on accentuating the action-packed theme, bringing to the forefront the vibrancy and energy encapsulated within the narrative, all while maintaining a visually graphic and textured environment.

Immersing ourselves in the cinematic world, we meticulously recreated various facets of the film, providing a comprehensive journey for the audience. Following the protagonist, Gal Gadot, through these intricately re-imagined scenes, we aimed to encapsulate the essence of some of the scenes of the narrative.

Project information

A distinctive feature of our approach was the initial creation of the entire title sequence in 3D, lending depth and dimension to the visual experience. Subsequently, each frame underwent a meticulous hand-painting process. The frames were then carefully re-scanned and processed, ensuring a seamless integration of the handcrafted elements into the digital realm.

Our methodology aimed not only to capture the pulse of the film but also to offer a unique blend of digital precision and handcrafted artistry, culminating in a title sequence that serves as a captivating prelude to the cinematic journey that unfolds in "Heart of Stone."
