Here's my 2 cents worth towards the 'The Man in the Herringbone Hat' collaboration. Started by animating the 'herringbone card' designed by steve rolston and then that kind of evolved into this opening title sequence. Hope you like.
Thanks to everyone for the resources, especially megan carnes for the track 'Sunday evening'.
Also thanks to Matt Conley for the link to www.archive.org (I never even knew it existed!), have used these public domain clips:
So what next....
I liked the idea I read the other day by Wirrow about the possiblity of this film being done in style simliar to Richard Linklaters 'A scanner darkly' - whereby someone films this story as best as possible (even if it's just with appropriate actors?) and then the footage is rotoscoped by us all, & the set & bkgrounds created by animation - hard work I know, but could look great!
The opening archive footage from these titles could be used a demo for this process if someone wants to give it go??!
