Last weekend I watched Stranger Than Fiction expecting to see a regular Will Ferrell comedy, but I was happily surprised to find a little gem of a film jam-packed with sick motion graphics. Fortunately for you and me, MK12, the motion graphics house behind Stranger Than Fiction’s animation, just updated their reels (via Motionographer).
The motion graphics in the film are part of a graphical user interface that helps Will Ferrell’s character (and the audience) to navigate the film. The GUI shows its face early and often, starting in a delightful opening sequence. Watch it now.
Head to MK12’s site to see the closing titles and tons of other great work. They even put up the pitches that landed them the Stranger Than Fiction job.
