THE LIGHTHOUSE

 ART DIRECTION

Brian Cassidy

The goal of this project was to create an animated title sequence for Robert Egger’s 2019 film The Lighthouse. Much of the film descends into madness and altered states of reality.s. This inspired my surreal approach to illustration and movement creating an otherworldly adventure of, dread for the audience., The sequence goes through the characters and key visuals of the story without giving too much away.e. The video short combines the sound of a sea shanty (from the film’s soundtrack), ocean noises, string noises (recorded by me scrapping scissors across guitar strings), and various other noises from the movie to create
a lush soundscape.
