Title Sequence: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

This title sequence is for the movie ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ which is one of my favourite films. The title sequence, which was created in Adobe Illustrator and Adobe After effects, portrays Walter starting off at the train platform and then moving and transitioning to important scene during his adventures and ending with him reaching his love interest in his workplace.

The process started off with illustrations created in Adobe Illustrator and then exporting it into Adobe After Effects for animation. The way it was animated was having Walter stay in the centre of the screen with only his limbs animated while the background, which is long strip of illustrated scenes, slides across from right to left to give an effect that Walter is moving forward.
