Quentin Baillieux et Raphaelle Tinland
How did you approach the title sequence? What was the artistic direction from the partners?
"Plan de table" is about wedding. From the beginning, the director wanted to work with paper and a carousel book.
We proposed her different references, as well as suggestions for graphic treatment.
Did you work with a team? If so, how did you organize the work?
As a pair, we already are a small team! But yes, we submitted our designs to a team of CG artists and technicians, who helped us put everything in volume and movement. All in all, there were seven people in the team.
How was the director involved in the title sequence?
Once the general concept was validated, Christelle Raynal gave us a great freedom in directing the title sequence. The true constraint was to respect the order of the names displayed on screen, the font sizes, etc. Everything that is contractual in the creation of a title sequence.
How did you work with the music composer?
The film soundtrack was made completely aside of our work. We discovered it much later in the production process.
When, in the film fabrication process, were you brought in?
It was during the postproduction. The editing was in progress, and Christelle showed us extracts of the film, to put us into its atmosphere.
How long did you have to make the title sequence?
It took us a month and a half, from the brief to the delivery.
Who contacted you to do this title sequence?
ChezEddy, the production studio that represents us, had us meet Christelle, with whom they had worked several times before (notably on the Bourjois commercials) and whom they know well.
What are your influences for this title sequence?
We drew our inspiration from the mechanisms of carousel books like “Bruit blanc” by David A. Carter (Gallimard Jeunesse Editions) or the “Star wars” carousel book by Matthew Reinhart, which is a pure wonder.
