Vibrant Bollywood-inspired titles for Danny Boyle's Slumdog Millionaire
Rushes were asked to complete movie end title graphics.
Film title designer, Matt Curtis of AP Design, designed the end title sequence for Danny Boyle's award-winning new feature "Slumdog Millionaire" and came to Rushes' motion graphics designer Matt Lawrence to create them. The film, which won eight Oscars and picked up four Golden Globes, tells the story of impoverished Indian teen Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) who became a contestant on the Hindi version of "Who Wants to be A Millionaire?".
A "poster world" of scenes from the film utilising footage, stills and textures were given a vibrant "Bollywood style" poster treatment using After Effects and were intercut with a lavish Bollywood dance routine using a train station as the stage.
Matt Lawrence comments, "This was such a great project to be involved in from start to finish. Not only did I get to work with the very talented and charming Matt Curtis but I was able to work on a Danny Boyle film and produce something I’m really proud of within a tight schedule and with the help of the amazing team at Rushes."
