Opening Titles for Up in the Air

Jason Reitman and Shadowplay are on a roll, with great title sequences that is, for what seems to be another fantastic film. On the day that Up In the Air was nominated for a number of Golden Globes including best director and best picture, i thought I'd share the new intro from the creative brains behind the opening of Juno and Thank You for Smoking.

My favorite part of the aesthetic is that so many can relate to it. I know those crop circles, i see them every time i make the cross country flight - huh - didn't know anyone else was paying attention. It's a great feeling to know they were and it's so beautiful, i'd love to incorporate it into a fabric pattern or something.

Reitman talks abotpiration and making of the sequence here, and Gareth Smith of Shadowplay is interviewed about it here.
