The Curator Title Sequence


For this project, we were asked to make a title sequence for a TV show.  I created a fictional show titled “The Curator”. The concept of the show is an eccentric museum curator, known as the collector,  who travels the galaxy searching for mysterious artifacts taking anything he finds interesting. I created this animated introduction using Cinema 4D. This software allowed me to compose a set and create scenes of the title to highlight details and tell the story of the curator.


The major challenge of this project was the learning curve of using a new render engine. I transitioned over to Octane, a GPU based renderer. Having to learn this node-based texture workflow and understand the new settings and tools, made it a challenge to complete on time. Another challenge I encountered was the ending title. I wanted the texture on the skull to peel off and produce the title. I tried a few different setups until I came across the idea to use a dynamic fabric to wrap the skull and then pull it off with a physical attractor.
