Showcase: Beeple and the FITC Toronto 2019 Titles

Conference titles have long been an opportunity for the commercial artists in our community to let loose, explore new ideas, and do something a bit off the beaten path.

That is definitely the case with FITC Toronto’s 2019 titles by none other than the unstoppable force that is Beeple AKA Mike Winkelmann.

While Beeple has never been shy to get a little weird in his work. These titles are a perfect testament to what projects like this can mean for our industry.

This opener takes the form of a faux day-in-the-life story that depicts our distraction riddled world with scary accuracy. Part opening titles, part music video, and all in your face energy.

Hats off to the team involved!
