The Life of Birds (1998)

Concept and creative process

Opening titles for ‘The Life of Birds’, a natural history of bird life, narrated by David Attenborough. For the title sequence, a well-choreographed montage of bird life footage was layered in a digital edit over abstracted imagery of a white dove beating its wings in ultra-slow motion. The images were composited on a Quantel Henry by 4:2:2 Videographics.
