Les Chevaliers du ciel
A mixed 3D and real shots main title sequence for this french action movie about fighter pilots.
The movie introduction takes place at an airplane exhibition. The idea was to make the transition between real shots and 3D models, inspired by the plane model kits. The director asked Laurent Brett to find an “impressive wat to begin his movie” in an “american style”.
