Semi Permanent 2018 – Opening Titles



Inspired by Ernst Haeckel’s work, the titles delve into a microscopic world and brings to life the real beauty of this unseen world. It follows the story of microorganisms from birth to death: representing the event theme of ‘creative tension’ in three stages: pushing and pulling, friction, and release. Made in partnership with Dropbox, the titles were a grand collaborative project between a dream team of eleven talented people of different disciplines, from all around the world. The process into making the titles were documented through four films by Ways & Means: Part I: o-sleep-till-sydney-i Part II: o-sleep-till-sydney-ii Part III: o-sleep-till-sydney-iii Part IV: o-sleep-till-sydney --- CREDITS Directed & Produced by Joyce N.
