Shazam Title Sequence

Shazam Title Sequence

The "Shazam" title sequence brings to life the adolescent fantasies of Shazam’s foster-brother, Freddy Freeman. We dive into Freddy’s “journal” to view his deepest superhero-obsessed desires and dreams, expressed in hand-drawn animation, as they come alive in this flip-book style sequence constructed from his doodles and toys. Working closely with the film’s directors, Aspect wrote, designed, animated and composited the sequence.
