I chose the film noir ‘The Maltese Falcon (1941)’. This film is about a private detective that takes on a case that involves him with three eccentric criminals, a gorgeous liar, and their quest for a priceless statuette.
This title sequence was made using blender where I staged two sets. The first set consisting of elements seen throughout the film whilst the second set, with the statue and hands, is meant to represent the chase and desire the characters have for the statue. Some hands are placed in a way that would hint at the romance between two of the main characters.
