‘ODD One Out’ Main Titles: A Film by Raj Davsi


Raj Davsi is an Art Director at The Mill London.


In his talk at Forward Festival 2019, Raj will unravel the process of creating ‘ODD One Out’ which will be the Main Titles for this year’s festival. The unique and design-heavy film is fully CG and features a majestic panther character. The creature is undergoing a change that makes him distinctly different and causes others to be threatened by his power and strength.


Within the title sequence, the viewer goes on a journey exploring abstract and dream-like worlds and to find the ‘ODD One Out’ before seeing a transfer of rich colour and chaos. Raj will discuss how he interpreted the brief, and what it was like to undergo a personal project on such a large scale.

Raj’s other recent work includes Nissan’s sponsorship titles for The Champions League 2019, the powerful Huawei ‘Mate 10’ and VUE ‘This is Not A Cinema,’ all of which demonstrate his unique abstract style and bold approach to emotional storytelling.
