Book of Henry

Book of Henry

We created this two and a half minute opening sequence for Colin Trevorrow's Focus Feature release, Book of Henry. The sequence animates the contents of Henry's journal, and in doing so, illustrates the inner-workings of this child genius' mind. Working closely with Mr. Trevorrow himself, we utilized a combination of 3D and hand illustration, capturing the pen strokes of our artists and projecting them onto paper texture within a 3D book.
