For this modern coming-of-age film, Picturemill was delighted to create a title sequence with a light, 1980s inspiration and a contemporary playfulness. A recreation of the book title design writes on with exciting energy, transforming the shot into a vibrant magenta backdrop as we follow Simon on his morning trip to school. As he is joined in the car by his friends, select moments are used for cards to be revealed or hidden from view by elements and characters in scene.
The end crawl features two and three frame animations of memorable moments from the film, but treated with an acetone transfer look that feels like it leapt out of a teen’s notebook. It celebrates the friendships and moments that Simon has in the film through the filter of the novel.
