Working in close collaboration with the Netflix Animation team throughout the initial concept art and storyboard phase, we developed a profound comprehension of the story and the requisite message to be conveyed through the title card. This understanding provided a solid foundation for us to develop the aesthetic treatment and animation.

The Magicians Elephant story hinges on an ambience of magic and mystery, and the film's characters, environments, and scenes are crafted with a fable-like quality. We chose to emphasize this style in our motion principles and textures, combining the enchanting essence of our painterly ink chamber reveals with playful linear golden element animations. By adding a paper texture and subtle layer depth, we imbued the piece with a tactile quality.
