X-Men Dark Phoenix_Title Sequence_Design and Direction

——

I had the pleasure to pitch on the open title sequence for the film X-Men: Dark Phoenix. I developed three distinct concepts that evoked the core concepts and style of the film, while attempting to create a classic aesthetic which differentiated itself from the over the top logo reveals of the previous X-Men films.

Client: Twentieth Century Fox

Creative Director: Garson Yu

Design, Direction: Jason Forrest Hogg

Studio: YuCo 

Executive Producer: Reno Robertson

Direction 1_Black Hole

"Black Hole" is a stylized representation of the death and rebirth of a star. In a nearly monochromatic space, the star goes supernova creating a black hole, and with it gravitates in all of the adjacent matter. Once all of the matter of space has been accumulated, the energies explode giving birth to the Phoenix.

Direction 2_Dark Star

"Dark Star" begins in the atmosphere of a star. As it travels further into space the star dies out, leaving behind a husk of ash and remaining subsurface heat. The star then erupts filling the galaxy with light and energy.

Direction 3_Big Bang

"Big Bang" depicts the life force of the universe coming alive in the form of the big bang. A distant light at the edge of space erupts and for a second you see the form the Phoenix, which dies and dissapates its energies across the galaxies. In the place of the Phoenix, a dead star comes back to life.
