Brief: Create the title sequence for the movie I Am Sam.
What's the movie about?: Sam Dawson is an intellectually-disabled, single father. Sam raises his daughter, Lucy, with the help of his friends (who also have disabilities). However, at age 7 when Lucy begins surpassing Sam’s mental ability, Sam becomes in danger of losing custody.
Concept: Making Origami—Life from the Eyes of a Child
Sam’s mental disability makes him developmentally the same age as his daughter. To highlight this—and to tie in the origami theme shown throughout the movie—the titles will show him struggling to make an origami giraffe. I’ll use a macro lens to show the pointed focus a child typically has while doing arts and crafts.
