Announcement from Hornet Workshop:
Gui Marcondes took home the award for Excellence in Title Design at SXSW Film Design Awards for his Bunraku title sequence.
When the director of Bunraku came across the short film Tyger by Guilherme Marcondes, he was captivated by the combination of puppetry and animation used in the piece and knew that Marcondes could tackle the challenge of making a storytelling sequence that could set the stage for his new movie. Marcondes was given the creative autonomy to direct a title sequence that used elements of live action puppetry, 2D and 3D animation to explain the back story of the universe in which Bunraku takes place.
The title sequence was entirely fabricated and shot at the Hornet Workshop in Brooklyn.
