Semi-Permanent 2015 Opening Titles

Raoul Marks (a frequent collaborator with Patrick Clair at Elastic), directed a goosebump-inducing title sequence for Semi-Permanent 2015. 

In Marks’ words:

A surreal trip. An allegory for the creative process and growth of an individual. From birth, to individuation, to criticality and finally to finding ones own creative space. Or, if preferred, just some fun times floating through the void.

Marks also composed the sequence’s music and sound design. Watching him working in Cinema4D in the making of video above, it’s clear he is a man of many talents.
