Stranger Than Fiction
Nothing on the box.
Not even that much on offer at Blockbuster.
But, we picked up Stranger Than Fiction, having vaguely remembered it getting some okay reviews, and while it's not an outstanding film, it has got some great motion graphics going on.
The central character, Harold Crick, is an obsessive compulsive Internal Revenue auditor, and director Marc Foster wanted to represent his thought processes with a visual GUI (Graphic User Interface for the non-geeks out there). He turned to the guys at MK12 to put something together, having been shown their reel as a reference.
Check out their site for the original pitch they created, the second pitch, the elegant and witty opening sequence, and the closing titles. The extras package on the DVD has also got a good description of how they arrived at their solution, but be warned, it's a bit of a lovefest.
