“Muse” Main Titles by Fernando Domínguez
Former Prologue designer and Dvein co-founder Fernando Domínguez pulls inspiration from Dante´s Divine Comedy for the spectacular opening title sequence for “Muse,” Jaume Balagueró´s new supernatural thriller.
Fernando Domínguez Cózar, creative director, title designer, and musician in Valencia, Spain: “The opening titles are based on one of the Divine Comedy´s infernos: The Fate of Suicides.
“Since the suicides have ‘denied the God-given sanctity of their bodies on earth,’ they are deemed unfit for human form.
“The soul grows into an anguished and gnarled tree. The placement of the soul is haphazard and disordered, ‘anywhere that fortune tosses it,’ analogous to how the Suicides treated their bodies.
“The opening titles are a representation of this fate of the Suicides´s inferno. Melted bodies forming abstract forms mixing and forming trees, natural elements and surrealist creatures inhabit this fiction.”
