I designed and animated the opening title sequence for 'Bloom' while at Slate VFX for Playmaker. It was a beautiful job to work on creating the style of a dark fairytale in a distinctively Australian style.  The palette is inspired by Australian artists Sidney Nolan and Russel Drysdale. The look evokes the Australian landscape with warm rust colours and scattered silver gumtrees. Rough watercolour strokes and a simple
illustration style are used to create a magical and naive storybook feel. All of the typography and backgrounds are hand-painted frame by frame to create the flickering style. Each scene is a vignette  of characters during the flood that is at the heart of the magical Bloom story.
