Up in the Air
2010 • Paramount Pictures
Dir. Jason Reitman
A high altitude main title sequence for Jason Reitman’s critically acclaimed third feature, starring George Clooney.
The sequence features aerial photography from across the country. It captures America’s abstract landscapes and, in a way, the main character’s feelings of being distant from the world and people below. The typography harkens back to the glamorous, golden days of flying.
