In keeping with the motto "Forget the film, watch the title" I created a title sequence that should get you emotionally into the right mood for the film that would follow.
Therefore I first defined the content and the story of the film, but I also thought about the genre (drama) and the mood of the film.
The film "Cyan" is about a family tragedy that causes a deep-acting psychosis for the main actress.
The daughter of the main actress drowns in the North Sea at the beach of Langeoog. That is the reason why the mother developes an abnormal relation to water.
This theme is taken up in the title sequence. The element water is consciously not shown directly, but rather implied through the mirroring effect.
The "Akademie Deutsche POP Stuttgart" designed the title music in close cooperation. On the one hand the soundtrack should increase the melancholic mood, on the other hand it should break it.
(All names are fictional, except the title designer and the music producers.)
