Prologue: OFFF 2009 Titles

ilya-new

Prologue’s Ilya Abulhanov designed and directed this title sequence for the 2009 OFFF festival in Oeiras, Portugal.

Starring a mysterious cast clad in para-military gear, the sequence feels like the pre-amble to a guerrilla warfare strike in the not-so-distant future. The quirky costumes and desolate landscapes are the real focus here, mixing elements of Half-Life, Star Wars and the Mujahideen. Ilya does a nice job balancing the sparse cinematographic compositions with solid type and understated graphics.

As always, HECQ delivered an outstanding soundtrack that extends the ambience of the visuals and builds tension throughout the project.

  1. Wasn’t it in Huevos, Spain? …or maybe Oire, Germany? I don’t know what comes next.

  2. SICK title sequence. I saw this in on the big screen at OFF Oeiras and it was amazing. Kudos to HECQ too, perfect sound design.
    Bravo, Ilya and Prologue! :-)

  3. In a time when so many projects seem to fit so easily into the motion graphics zeitgeist, it’s a pleasure to see such a well-executed project that is clearly a product of an individual’s personal influences from well outside the claustrophobic world of motion graphics.
