Scenes of Le voyage dans le lune, 1902

This a creative storyboard concept for the title sequence of “A Trip to the Moon” a movie directed by George Melies in 1902, which is about a small group of scientists traveling on a rocket to get to the moon. In fact, this movie is considered the first science–fiction genre film. By original material combining with a playful imagination, this film demonstrated a fantasy and antique world.

I decided to apply textures to my design which can make a natural and interesting mood. Since “A Trip to the Moon” is about two opposite aspects: science and magic, the Earth and the Moon, I used a complementary palette including blue and yellow. To specify, the blue color would represent human-related objects. By contrast, yellow is used for the moon and stars.
