Cody Courmier, who specialises in animation and cinematography, has created this incredible re-design of ‘The Birds’ title. In modernising the classic film, he has created some incredible visuals. He explains “I was very interested in one’s evil perception of the birds. My goal was to set the mood for the classic film and aim for a horror/creepy vibe. I employed bold colors (red, black, and tan) with integrated grunge textures to imply dirtiness. Anticipation was another main feeling I wanted to illustrate. This was achieved by slow motion shots overlaid with quick movements. Ultimately this will keep the audience’s attention while symbolising a bird’s natural, quick and unpredictable movements.
Conceptually, I really wanted to convey that the birds organised themselves in a purely sinister way. I thought about how I could do this, and ultimately decided it would be interesting to show images or footage of a bird, but made up of many smaller birds. I wanted to convey the birds in a “larger than life” sense. Overlaying aerial footage inside the birds also presented another interesting visual concept – that they see all and know all.”
