Check Out an Impressive Fanmade 'Mockingjay' Credits Sequence
The release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I isn't upon us until this fall, but that hasn't stopped the excitement from building, especially since the first teaser trailer was unveiled. Well, one fan of the sci-fi franchise wanted to get a jump start on the film as part of her bachelor graduation project in communication design. Anne Winkler (via MoviePilot) might have a bright future in the film industry as she has crafted a very stylish and cool opening credits sequence for the first chapter of the two-part finale, using Lorde's haunting rendition of "Everybody Wants to Rule the World," which actually hails from the Catching Fire soundtrack. The sequence really has a cool James Bond kind of vibe to it. Watch below now!
Here's the fanmade credits sequence for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I by Anne Winkler:
Winkler says, "The title sequence is based on the symbolism of the story und uses a graphical style, referring to the "propos" from the story itself and to create a consistent style to combine content from all three books/movies. The story of the title sequence deals with the development of the protagonist Katniss Everdeen symbolized by the Mockingjay figure and the consequences of her actions." Some of the timing and placement of the credits and animation could use some work, but it's still rather impressive. And it certainly makes me want Lorde to do a James Bond theme along with her Mockingjay soundtrack duties.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I is the first movie in the two-part finale of The Hunger Games franchise, based on the books by Suzanne Collins. In this chapter we follow heroine Katniss Everdeen's (Jennifer Lawrence) journey as she leads the districts of Panem in a rebellion against the tyrannical and corrupt Capitol. As the war that will determine the fate of Panem escalates, Katniss must decipher for herself who she can trust and what needs to be done, with everything she cares for in the balance. Francis Lawrence directs the adaptation written by Danny Strong and Lionsgate releases the film November 21st.
